  • Question

  • Hi,

    I would like to find one that is comprehensive. I really didn't find anything in the Microsoft webcast but maybe I missed it. The higher the level the better.

    Thanks,

    TechNet Webcast: SQL Server 2008 R2: Reaching Users with Microsoft Office (Level 300) 
    In this webcast, we discuss using PowerPivot for Excel for data analysis. Join us to learn how users can create sophisticated business data analysis solutions without the time-consuming reliance on IT personnel. We explain how PivotTables and PivotCharts that include data from multiple tables can be created using data imported into a PowerPivot workbook. We then describe how this data can be filtered on the fly to create views into the data based on predetermined criteria and to create new views based on ad hoc filtering. Discover how the new Data Analysis Expression syntax makes it possible for users to create complex measures based on data from multiple tables within the PowerPivot model.  Presenter: Dmitri Tchikatilov, Database Technology Specialist, Microsoft Corporation View other sessions from SQL Server 2008: Access Your Data Any Place, Any Time If you have questions or feedback, contact us.  ...
