Do you work with "Big Data"? Do you import and manipulate large datasets in Excel? If so you’ll already be familiar with the limitations of Excel. Power Query, (known as Get and Transform in Excel 2016) is designed to get you past these limitations, allowing you to import and work with 1-million-plus-row datasets from virtually any source.
If you work with, analyze and generate reports from large datasets, having a good understanding and working knowledge of Power Query / Get and Transform is a must!
Session highlights include…
• Importing data into Excel from external sources
• Linking to external sources
• Creating Pivot Tables from external data sources
• Using the Query Editor to create calculated columns in pivot tables
• Using the Query Editor to clean and transform data
Power Query / Get and Transform can save you a ton of time when working with imported data. In many cases when you get data from external sources, it needs work on it before it can be used. Although this can be done using Excel functionality, Power Query / Get and Transform is a lot faster, can handle much more data, and is repeatable with a couple of clicks.
This event is aimed at users of Excel (2010, 2013 and 2016 for Windows) who wish to learn about Power Query / Get and Transform. Attendees should have at least intermediate knowledge of Excel and be familiar with formulas and creating Pivot tables.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Power Query is only available for Excel 2010, Excel 2013 and 2016 for Windows in Office Professional Plus, Office 365 Professional Plus or the standalone editions of Excel 2013 & 2016. If in doubt whether this training is relevant for your version of Excel, please check with your IT department.
