Course Overview:

Power BI (including Power Query & Power Pivot) are the biggest Excel news items in the last 10 years. They give Excel users the power to draw information out of multiple sources, link it together then perform calculations on it that can then be sliced & diced any way you want.

This hands-on course is focused on real-world techniques utilising the amazing capabilities of Power Query.

This 1-day course covers the core elements needed to get an understanding of what Power Query can do. You will use Power Query to extract and shape data from a variety of sources and data layouts. You will learn to consolidate 50 csv files instantly, “un-pivot” data and replace VLOOKUPS with merged queries.
