OK, uploaded the full 287 MB file to YouTube.  Much better than last night, although I’d still like something about 50% better.  Anyone have tips for me?  Drop me a comment or email 🙂

And still very interested in feedback on video vs. text/screenshot posts.

  1. It depends on the content, of course. For this type of post that is highly demonstrative… video seems the best choice. Probably easier for you too 🙂 (less screen shottin’ and typin’)

  2. I love the video format. PowerPivot really comes to life with it. I think anyone seeing the video can appreciate that they could do the same things on their own.

    Rock on!

  3. great demo Rob, i’ll have to make a movie too soon 🙂

    I love that relationship detector, PowerPivot will depend on that type of userfriendly tools.

  4. […] started looking for it. But I couldn’t find it, then i remembered Rob showed it to us on his blog post . It’s pretty […]

  5. Great demo video. If you find time you would like to see how you would make powerpivot, reports nicely availible in sharepoint. I know of the powerpivot gallery, but maybe if you had some thoughts about how you would organize the sharepoint site to hold reports, powerpivot, dashboards etc. and make it all fit together as a BI portal…

  6. Wow, wow, wow!! I am a self taught excel yourser, with a background in M.S.M.E. /engineering. Started figuring how to use this tool with all kinds of math formulas, then I graduated to row, column techniques. For beginners of excel, that should be lesson (1), and starting to think about Pivot Tables, and learned about PowerPivots with some DAX and Cube language. This stuff completes me. All I can say is this is the most powerful tool on the planet. The compression and the data crunching ability is simply redefining what a server is. Excel pros are going to love this. Kudos, Kudos Really!!!

    P.S. I like the video over screen shots. I think its because it gives my eyes a break from driving/scanning data, with video, I can follow your lead and enjoy the ride.
