People typically use PTs to condense a data set into aggregate data for specified dimensions.

For example, you might have a data set with thousands of rows, and each row indicates the total sales for a particular product, store, and date.

With a PivotTable you can quickly and easily analyze the data to do things like find total sales by product, by store, by date, or by combinations of the above.
