Too few people know about Power Query, an Excel feature that’s been around since Excel 2010. It is designed to help import, cleanse and reshape data so that the data is useful.
In this class, Oz will share methods for handling these (and other) common needs. You’ll also see how these tasks can be automated when you have to re-do them on a regular basis. Excel’s Power Query simplifies these tasks through a robust interface – minimizing or even eliminating the need to write formulas or code.
Who Is This For?
This Masterclass is for anyone who regularly has to work with data that’s not immediately useful. Customer Service Reps, Sales Assistants, Marketers, Event Planners, Analysts, etc.
This is a comprehensive introductory Power Query Masterclass. No previous knowledge or experience with Power Query is required. However, you should be an intermediate Microsoft Excel user to follow along.
