Before you can do this exercise, you'll need to download and unzip this file (if you have any problems doing this, click here for help).

You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.

Open the file contained within the folder name shown above.

Create a pivot table of the property portfolio to show:

  • The asking price as the value field;
  • The type of property in the rows;
  • The location in the columns;
  • The remaining fields in the filter area.

Change the filters and aggregate functions to show a count of properties that have:

  • 3 bedrooms;
  • A medium garden; and
  • 2 bathrooms.

Your pivot table should look something like this:

Use the filters at the top to only show the data you are interested in.

There is only one property that is detached - use drill down to show this:

Change your pivot table so that it now shows the average asking price of houses with:

  • The postcode of the property in the rows;
  • The type of property in the columns; and
  • The remaining fields in the filter area.

Change the filters to show the average asking price of properties that have:

  • 2 bathrooms;
  • 2 or 3 bedrooms; and
  • which are in the countryside

Your pivot table will now look something like this:
