Add Slicers to PivotTables in PowerPivot

Recall from my earlier post Creating My First Report using PowerPivot in which we created a Items Vs Customer Sales matrix report.

I am going to use same report to demonstrate how we can add slicer to this report.

Slicers are one-click filtering controls that narrow the portion of a data set shown in PivotTables and PivotCharts. Slicers can be used in both Microsoft Excel workbooks and PowerPivot workbooks, to interactively filter and analyze data.

Open the report we created in our previous post.

From Insert Tab select Slicer in the ribbon.

Choose the source Connection/Data model and respond Open.

Select the Customer Table.

Select the Country/Region Code field and OK.

A Slicer will be added to the sheet.

Re-size to fit and drag the Slicer to position at desired location on sheet.

You can give desired Caption to your Slicer by editing the Slicer Caption.

Most important is to select the pivot table on which this Slicer will operate.

Select Report Connection, and from preceding window select the PivotTable.
Above is the screenshot with applied filter on Country/Region Code = DE.

Stay tuned to know more options, I will come up with more details in my upcoming posts.

Till then keep practicing.
