Overview

Excel Power Query has been a part of Excel since Excel 2016! It’s in the Data tab under Get and Transform.

Unfortunately many people haven’t explored what it has to offer!

They continue doing things the old “manual” way, Or the “complex” way with difficult formulas.

Power Query is like an Instant Miracle Cure to your difficult data analysis problems:

  • You can quickly combine and consolidate large data from different sources like Excel, text files, the web, online services, databases, even your Outlook! (Plus many more).

  • You can convert downloads from your ERP system into information you can use.

  • Replace complex Excel formulas with a click of a button.

  • Turn complex data transformations that took forever to do (such as unpivoting data), to just a few clicks.

And these are just a few examples of what it can do!

On top, your actions are recorded so whenever you get new data, all you have to do is click Refresh!

Guess what? You can apply ALL the knowledge you learn in this course to Power BI as well!

You might be thinking…

Does it apply to me? Can I really use this at work?

If you have Excel 2016 or above, you have Power Query as a part of your Excel (Power Query is Not available for MAC).

If you work with Power BI, you also have the latest version of Power Query.

Plus learning Excel Power Query will be more fun and effortless than you think.

You’ll get the tools to make a big difference at your workplace.

The course is split in 2 parts: Essentials and Advanced.

  • Just from the Power Query Essentials you’ll be able to solve many problems and make a meaningful impact in your work

  • In the Excel Advanced Power Query section you’ll tackle more complex scenarios. The real world comes with messy data. You might need to write custom M functions to transform the data to the way you need. In this section you will also learn how Power Query M thinks and works.

Here are some the things you’ll accomplish:

  • Import, transform and clean large data from different sources (Excel, csv, web, sharepoint etc.)

  • Combine data from multiple Excel workbooks into a single Table (or Pivot Table)

  • Consolidate data from all files in a folder (and make exceptions as you need)

  • Understand and write your own Custom Power Query M functions to do tasks you can’t easily do with the interface

  • Use Excel’s Data Model and Power Pivot to Create Relationships between your data

  • Understand when to use Excel Power Query and when to Load data to Excel’s Data Model

  • Create an interactive Excel Dashboard with Power Query, Data Model, Pivot Tables and slicers

  • Use Power Query in Power BI and create a dashboard you share online

And something else you may not know …

Generally, when you learn something, the more effort you put in, the more you get out. But it’s NOT the same with learning Power Query! If you just put in a little effort, you get SO much in return! This is the difference with learning Power Query to learning other skills like Excel VBA.
