Save Your Preferences

With the Pivot Power Free add-in, you can save a pivot table layout, summary function, and number format, and then apply them to any pivot table.

Then, select a cell in any pivot table, and click the Apply Prefs button, to quickly apply your preferred settings to that pivot table.

Quickly Fix the Functions

When a pivot table is created, it might have one or more fields using the COUNT function, because of blanks or text in the source data. With Pivot Power Free, you can quickly change all the values in a pivot table from COUNT to SUM, instead of changing the fields one at a time.

Quickly Change Number Formatting

Instead of formatting the value fields individually, you can quickly apply a specific number format to all the value fields.
