Recorded Session
75 Minutes


    Learn to use the Power Pivot interface and menu options. If you work with data, you're likely already familiar with common frustrations with Microsoft Excel like size limitations and manually entering data from multiple sources. Luckily there are two Microsoft tools- Power Pivot and Power Query that solve ALL of these issues, right inside Excel.

    No Access databases or IT department help needed. With imports of 1-million-plus rows of data sets from virtually any source and the ability to save query definitions, you can completely overhaul your reporting and analysis workflow. Power Pivot has been described as the most important new feature in Excel in 20 years. Power Pivot has been developed by Microsoft to help companies analyze and understand the growing quantities of data that are created daily.

Why Should You Attend?

    Power Query and Power Pivot complement each other. Power Query is the recommended experience for discovering, connecting to, and importing data. Power Pivot is great for modeling the data you've imported.

    Power Pivot helps you overcome Excel's limitations when it comes to working with massive datasets. Using the add-in you can import over 1 million row datasets, from virtually any source. However, that's not all. Power Pivot is also handy for creating pivot tables from multiple datasets. You'll not have to bother with VLOOKUP, and you can forget about multiple consolidation ranges.

Area Covered

    Power Query can save you a lot of time when working with imported data. Often, when data is imported from external sources, it needs work on it, before it can be used. Unnecessary rows and columns may need to be removed, blank spaces may need to be deleted, and data may have to be merged or split. All of this can be done on Excel, but with Power Query, things move a lot faster. It can also handle much more data, and you can save query definitions on it to increase ease of usage in the future.
