Formatting an Excel Pivot Table Frequency Report

This is Part 2 of my 2-part series on Excel Pivot Table Frequency Reports. A Frequency Report is a great way to answer these questions:

  • How many invoices did we generate for values under $5,000?
  • How many invoices did we gererate for values over $15,000?

In this part, I show you how to format the Frequency Report to make it easier to present the information.

Formatting the Frequency Report

Here are the changes that I made to improve the look of the Frequency Report:

  • Reduced the number of “bins” in the frequency range by changing the “Grouping.”
  • Changed the formatting to make large numbers (millions) easier to read – e.g. as $3.2M
  • Made a copy of the Pivot Table to show values as “% of Total.”

The cost is $9.95 for the video recording and that includes the Excel workbooks that I used and a step-by-step instructional manual. Follow this link to get more information about these recordings.
