Error on Page 72 - Sales of Bikes to Married Men

If you have come here, then chances are you have found this error in my book. I'm sorry for the error and confusion. In fact I found the error before the final print, but something went wrong and the corrected image didn't make it into the book.

Here is the correct image of the pivot table.

:lol: Just wanted to say "that errors appear deliberately to challenge the mind of the reader" in published documents. It was a really good challenge and it made me create a series of calculated columns to test the accuracy of the data. So, no need to blame the publisher, just add the above footnote to the inside front cover to allow other readers the same opportunity.
