Leverage Data with Power Query


Leverage data to create value with Power Query. This new Excel function does what it says on the tin – Gets data and Transforms it. Solve the problem of dirty data as you learn how to get and cleanse data from a wide range of sources before importing it for analysis into Excel.

Content Description


Are you tired of exporting data from your accounting system and copying / pasting it into Excel? Sick of sorting and cleaning the data before you can use it in your calculations? Power Query (or Get and Transform, in Excel 2016) is the answer to your problems, and the best thing to happen to Excel since it was released.


In this webinar you will learn to harness the power of Power Query (for Excel 2010 and 2013). Connect to a range of data sources and clean it using a powerful and intuitive point-and-click interface – no formulae needed! Then, once you’re done, set it up so that it will update and refresh in the future with a click of a button, following your every step. If you haven’t used this before, this is a must-view session.
