This video explains how to create an Excel pivot table based on a SQL Server database. You'll learn how to create connections to external data sources, how to edit connection strings and how to create a pivot cache using the external connection. The video also shows you how to create views in SQL Server Management Studio, along with how to write basic SQL statements in your VBA code to create flexible queries that you can use to create pivot tables.
