Hot Tip: Creating A Pivot Table Automatically

If your data is in a worksheet, select any cell within the data range Choose Insert > Tables Recommended PivotTables. Excel quickly scans your data, and the Recommended PivotTables dialog box presents thumbnails that depict some pivot tables that you can choose from.

Selecting a Recommended PivotTable

The pivot table thumbnails use your actual data, and there is a good chance that one of them will be exactly what you're looking for — or at least close to what you're looking for. Select a thumbnail, click 0K, and Excel creates the pivot table on a new worksheet.

When any cell in a pivot table is selected, Excel displays the PivotTable Fields task pane. You can use this task pane to make changes to the layout of the pivot table.
