Excel Roundup 20140929

I’ve seen lots of non-spreadsheet items with “Excel” in their names, such as gum, and bowling gloves, and hand dryers.

However, this is the first time that I’ve seen a product named after a pivot table. Do you think that they help you analyze your data more efficiently? I wonder if they have a women’s version too.

Other Excel Articles

Here are a few of the Excel articles that I read recently, that you might find useful:

  • To enhance your dashboard, use the tips from Gašper Kamenšek, to show the Top 5 or Bottom 5 results, by clicking a radio button.
  • Bill Jelen (Mr. Excel) shows how to look for 3 specific names, in adjacent cells of a lookup table, by using an array formula that I hadn’t seen before. Watch the video from 1:15 to 2:45, if you’re pressed for time.
