Explanation and example of a Pivot Table in Excel

Hello,

This question is a follow-up to the thread located here: Auto-merge multiple transaction ledgers in Excel

The best solution was provided by Rob Henson who suggested using a Pivot Table. Despite hearing of Pivot Tables on occasion in the past, I've never understood what they do or how to create/use them.

Questions

1) Could someone post a brief description/explanation of Pivot Tables and/or point me to a website with that info?

2) Could someone attach a simple example of a Pivot Table which accomplishes the objective described in the referenced thread?

Thanks
