Filter Data in a Pivot table

Filter your data to focus on a smaller portion of your PivotTable data for in-depth analysis. First, insert one or more slicers for a quick and effective way to filter your data. Slicers have buttons you can click to filter the data, and stay visible with your data, so you always know what fields are shown or hidden in the filtered PivotTable.


Tip: Now in Excel 2016, you can multi-select slicers by clicking the button on the label as shown above.
