Inserting Slicers

Slicers make it really easy to filter data in a pivot table. Adding a Slicer is similar to adding a second Page field (Report Filter), but it's even easier to use.

To add a Slicer to a pivot table:

  1. Select any cell in the pivot table.
  2. On the PIVOTTABLE TOOLS ANALYZE tab (PivotTable Tools Options tab in Excel 2007/2010), in the Filter group (Sort & Filter group in Excel 2007/2010), click the Insert Slicer command (and then select Insert Slicer in Excel 2007/2010):Insert Slicer
  3. In the Insert Slicers dialog box, check the field or fields (Yes, you can create multiple slicers at once!) to use to "slice" your data and click OK:Check Fields
  4. To use the Slicer, simply select one of the fields in the Slicer to filter your data by that field:Select a Field
