Publisher Comments:

Microsoft PowerPivot es un complemento gratuito para Excel de Microsoft que permite a los usuarios producir nuevos tipos de informes y análisis que simplemente eran imposibles antes, y este libro es el primero en abordar fórmulas DAX, la capacidad central de PowerPivot, desde la perspectiva de la audiencia de Excel. Escrito por el principal blogger a nivel mundial y practicante de la herramienta, los conceptos y el enfoque del libro se introducen de una manera paso a paso sencilla adaptada al estilo de aprendizaje de los usuarios de Excel en todas partes. Las técnicas que se presentan permiten a los usuarios producir, en horas o incluso minutos, resultados que anteriormente habrían tenido equipos enteros semanas o meses para producir e incluir lecciones sobre la diferencia entre las columnas y medidas calculadas, cómo fórmulas pueden ser reutilizadas a través de informes de totalmente diferentes formas , cómo combinar conjuntos disjuntos de datos en informes unificados, cómo hacer que ciertas columnas en un pivote se comporten como si el pivote estuviese filtrado mientras otras columnas no, y cómo crear cálculos de tiempo inteligentes en las tablas dinámicas como "Año a Año" y "Medias Móviles" si utilizan un calendario estándar, fiscal o un calendario personalizado. Las técnicas de "tipo-patrón" y las mejores prácticas contenidas en este libro se han desarrollado y perfeccionado a lo largo de dos años de entrenamiento en sitio con los usuarios de Excel de todo el mundo, y las lecciones clave de los seminarios que cuestan miles de dólares por día ya están disponibles dentro de las páginas de esta fácil de seguir guía.
