In this course, students will learn to import, connect to, and manipulate data using Excel’s amazing Power Query tool (also called Get and Transform). Power Query is part of Excel’s suite of Business Intelligence (BI) tools. Students will create, name, edit and refresh queries and connect to both Excel workbooks and external data sources. In the Query Editor, columns will be added, removed, split and merged. Using Power Query, participants will learn to clean different types of data including text, numbers and dates. Data will be pivoted and unpivoted and will be combined in different ways. Students will also learn to create calculations using Power Query’s “M” language and will create a pivot table from queried data

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