What is the purpose of a pivot table?

Like any other table based app, a pivot table consists of rows and columns. Additionally, it contains user-specified data fields and pages. All these components can be moved through the table grid in order to help a user to group the particular data in real time. When a user specifies the value of a data-field, a pivot table can convert the header of each column into a data option which can be manipulated by a user. There’s also a possibility to display different summaries of data such as frequencies and averages.
