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 ........
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 really handy for creating pivot tables from multiple datasets. You'll not have to bother with lookup, and you can forget about multiple consolidation ranges.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.
