This half-day course is for Excel users who spend too much time manipulating data into the right format before they even begin to analyze it month after month or week after week or day after day. Get and Transform (aka Power Query) can perform repetitive data cleansing such as deleting rows and columns, merging data from various data sources, and fixing layout issues without macros or VBA. Data source examples used in this class include Excel, CSV, and text, but the concepts taught can be applied to many different sources. Upon successful completion of this course, you will be able to:
- Create query connections to a variety of data sources
- Cleanse data for use in an Excel PivotTable
- Consolidate data from multiple datasets
Once Get and Transform is set up, simply click the Refresh button. You’ll save hours!
A quick-reference guide will also be provided that includes highlights of the course content, as well as additional tips and tricks.
Classes will be small to ensure interactive, personalized instruction.
Note: This course is taught from a Windows perspective. Apple users are welcome to join, but not all features are available for MacOS or function the same way that will be shown in class.
