This advanced Excel training covers the key advanced features of Excel’s Query Editor, designed to help you transform imported data quickly and without having to learn to code.
Power Query in Excel 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 and is repeatable with a couple of clicks.
• Using the Query Editor to create calculated columns
• Combine data from multiple sources using Append and Merge Queries
• Create a vertical list by splitting a single text string into multiple rows
• Use Unpivot to transform tabular data to list based data ready for reporting
• Use Parameters to create flexible, user-friendly and easy-to-run Queries
