Pivot Tables for Google Spreadsheets!!!

Hello to all my fellow Google-users out there!

My name is Krishna Sharma and I am happy to announce the launch of this online open-forum blog for all Google Spreadsheet users. It was recently announced that Pivot Table functionality has been added to Google Spreadsheets, thus lending significantly more power to an already-attractive product.

With this new launch, we wanted to create an online forum where you, the Google Spreadsheet user, could share your tips, tricks and feedback about the new Pivot Table gadget in Google Spreadsheets. Have you found a neat way to use the pivot table? Running into some problems or dead-ends? Curious to see how others are using the new Pivot Table functionality? Post your questions and/or comments here and watch for a response! Happy Googling!

I have been waiting for Google spreadsheets to add pivot tables for a long time now and I’m happy to see that they’ve added this feature now. I’ve only just started playing around with it and it seems to have a lot of potential!

I have started uploading a lot of our business data into Google Spreadsheets by uploading the raw Excel files. I use Google Spreadsheets all the time for personal finances so I’m very comfortable with it. I plan on using the collaborative benefits of Google’s applications to share my analysis of our data. I will continue to post with the progress that I make.

This is all I can make (aka this is lame - actually more than lame but more accurate comments won't be "approved by the blog author"):

Why on earth would you do such a thing? Do you TRULY trust Google and the Internet, in general, with your raw business data AND, even more important (according to me), your personal finances ???

Wow. It never ceases to amaze me that people just trust and trust and trust - no matter how much ID and data theft are out there.
