I have a list of transactions with column headers of Month, Date, Weekday,

Time and the transaction data. I would like to see the average number of

transactions per hour per day. Can this be done in a pivot table?

    • Yeah, Pivot table can show you averages. You might need to add a column in

      your data to group them by hour by day.

      Or you might use the group feature of pivot table. Right click on the field

      which has date/time.

      Group and Show detail -> Group ->.....

      Then in the data field, right click and then ->field settings, show average

      instead of sum or count or anything else.
