First things first, we have a simple data structure here with a date, description, paid-in, paid-out and balance or available amount column with the last row calculating the cash balance for each month As we will be using pivot tables, we need to confirm if our data is properly structured and if we know how pivot tables work, then we can understand that do need to normalize two columns i.e. To better utilize the capabilities of Excel Pivot tables, instead of having amounts split up in two columns, values must be in one column whereas another column should have “type” of transaction information in each row.
