Excel Tip: Analysing large datasets

Before I get into this week's short post, a quick reminder that Mynda Treacy's Excel Dashboards course is closing on Thursday, so this is your last chance to register.

I have a couple of large projects on the go at the moment which are taking up a chunk of my time, so when Alex Bankoff of Udemy emailed me offering some excellent free content that I could share with you, I jumped at the chance!

David Taylor has prepared an excellent tutorial on how to use Excel to start making sense of very large datasets. His tutorial uses baby names in California since 1880, from US Social Security data.

As well as helping you to get a feel for big data, it also introduces PivotTables and PivotCharts along the way.

You can do the tutorial here, no signup required.

Have fun!
