Microsoft Excel Advanced: Power Query or Data Transformation

Selwyn Community Education is based at Selwyn College, Kohimarama, Auckland.

This workshop runs Saturday 21 May 2022 9 AM - 1 PM.

Learn to use the tools designed specifically to make transforming and loading data into Excel streamlined and easily repeatable. Power Query was introduced to us in 2013 and is now firmly entrenched into the Excel interface as the Get and Transform tools. It is a game-changer if you need to get data into your spreadsheets for analysis, particularly if the data is not always in the right shape.

Rather than loading your raw data into a worksheet then using a combination of formulae, VBA and manual hacking to get it into a useable state, Power Query makes it easy to create a repeatable process to do this that takes place every time you 'refresh' your connection. Data can come from a variety of sources and be transformed and combined in a number of ways. This is a tool that can save your hours!
