    • The basics of how a pivot table works
    • What a pivot grid looks like
    • How to use the ASPxPivotGrid in an ASP.NET website

    What can the ASPxPivotGrid do for you? Suppose you’ve created a table or view in your database that represents some meaningful data about your product downloads. Using the ASPxPivotGrid, you can extract useful information from the data and find answers to such questions as:

    • What product has the highest download?
    • Which month has the highest downloads?

    The ASPxPivotGrid is an interactive grid that takes your data and automatically extracts, organizes, and summarizes it. You can use the ASPxPivotGrid to analyze, compare, find patterns and relationships, and discover trends from the data.
