This course introduces students to one of the most exciting and powerful tools in Excel – Power Pivot. Power Pivot is part of Excel's suite of Business Intelligence (BI) tools and allows users to work with large data sets in Excel's data model. Users can manipulate data in many ways quickly and easily using Power Pivot. During this course, students will import data into the Power Pivot data model, create relationships between tables, write calculated columns and measures and generate more powerful pivot tables from Power Pivot. Students will create expressions using DAX (Data Analysis Expressions) and update from Power Pivot data sources. Queries will be created and then students will use the data within Power Pivot and then generate supercharged pivot tables. Throughout this course, the instructor will include numerous tips, tricks and shortcuts. Key takeaways include a full course manual, Quick Reference Guide with keyboard shortcuts as well as sample and exercise files.

Note: This course is designed for students who have never used Power Pivot in Excel.
