A handy feature is that you can filter the selected data before you import it.
Microsoft PowerPivot for Excel Give Your Data Meaning
That would reduce the import time, by limiting the data to what you need for a specific analysis. In the virtual lab, I connected to a Sales table that had almost 4 million records, and it took just a minute or two for the PowerPivot for Excel add-in to import the data. In the PowerPivot client window, each table is on a separate worksheet, with its name on the sheet tab. You can change the tab names, to make the names shorter, or easier to understand.
You can also add calculated fields in the tables, as shown below. To create a calculated field, just type in the formula bar, which looks just like Excel's.
To make it easy to refer to the imported data, the field names appear automatically when you start typing. The whole point of importing all the data with the PowerPoint for Excel add-in, is to analyze it in an Excel pivot table.
To create a pivot table and pivot chart from the imported data, you use the PowerPivot Task Pane called the Gemini Task Pane in the virtual lab. The instructions implied that the pivot table and pivot chart were connected, but that wasn't the case in the virtual lab - adding fields to the pivot table didn't affect the pivot chart.
I'm sure they'll fix that feature before the final release, or the pivot tables won't be very easy to manage.
You can also add horizontal and vertical Slicers to the pivot table and pivot chart, to filter the data that's displayed. Slicers are a new feature in Excel , and I'm not sold on them yet. The one benefit that I can see is that slicers can be connected to multiple pivot tables.
That allows you to filter all the connected pivot tables at the same time.
Excel As a Database: How to Use Power Pivot Linked Tables
So, if your workbook as several pivot table, you won't need a macro to automatically filter a group of pivot tables. However, the slicers use quite a bit of space on the worksheet, and make it look very cluttered.
You can format them, so they're less intrusive, but I'll have to experiment a bit more, so see how that works best. This was just a quick overview of PowerPivot for Excel, as tested in the virtual lab.
If you don't have the Office Beta installed, I'd recommend this as a great way to see what PowerPivot can do. I liked the way that PowerPivot is integrated into Excel, with a familiar interface, and that makes it easy to get up and running. It took me about an hour to go through the 3 modules, while making notes and taking screenshots.
Nowhere is this more true than in the world of economics. Many countries and the most important banks maintain databases of economic data and make subsets of this data freely available as pdf files and Excel workbooks. How then best to use this data? For our example data, we will use statistics on external debt from the World Bank.
If you want to work this example, you can download the sample data for Excel or Excel If you wish to see the completed examples only: Excel Finished or Excel Finished. These data are downloaded from the World Bank as worksheet rows.
This is fine, but it hampers our ability to examine this data from different perspectives. In a relational database this would be easy, but worksheets do not provide a means for easily relating our worksheet of data to a range that defines the groups of nations we would like to compare.
Fortunately, Power Pivot does provide a mechanism for accomplishing this important task. In the example workbooks, the data have been placed into a Power Pivot table. As usual, clicking on the Power Pivot Window button will allow us to examine the data.
Right now, the most important thing to note is that in addition to the country name, there is a three-letter ISO standard symbol for each country. This will serve as our key value. We must then manually construct a range in Excel that defines the groups of nations we would like to compare in a pivot table.
This is very easy to do: we only need two columns.You can format them, so they're less intrusive, but I'll have to experiment a bit more, so see how that works best. PowerPivot is an add-in. The instructions implied that the pivot table and pivot chart were connected, but that wasn't the case in the virtual lab - adding fields to the pivot table didn't affect the pivot chart.

With this in mind, where does Excel fit in the future? DAX expressions allow a user to create measures based on the data model, which can summarize and aggregate millions of rows of table data in seconds. End users also demand their BI in mobile platforms.
