- To create a new pivot table, go to Data > Pivot Table and select a data range.
- In the dialogue box, under Insert to,select New sheet or Existing sheet, and click Create. Note that if you select existing sheet, you’ll have to select a specific cell location for the pivot table.
Copy and paste images into Sheets

- Simply right click on an image and hit copy, then in Sheets right click and hit Paste to insert the image over the grid.
Formula backed charts inserted from Answers
