INTRODUCTION TO Power Query Course

According to a Forbes survey, business users spend up to 80% of their time on data preparation, delaying the time to data analysis and decision making.

Power Query is one of the most important data preparation tools. It acts as an ETL tool that can Extract data across a wide variety of sources, Transform it quickly and easily, and then Load it directly into your table/data model.

Power Query, also known as Get & Transform, is natively integrated into many other Microsoft products such as:

  • Microsoft Excel
  • Microsoft Power BI
  • Microsoft SQL Server Data Tools for Visual Studio and more…

Learning to use Power Query means less time spent in data preparation and more time in analyzing it. Power Query allows you to do many things, but the four main steps are likely to be:

  • Import data from a variety of sources (From corporate databases to files, and social media to big data)
  • Merge data from multiple sources (if you like VLOOKUP, you’re going to love this!)
  • Shape data into the columns and records
  • Clean data to make it reliable and easy to use

Power Query will save you hours of time gathering and preparing your data.

In this Power Query Course, we will learn to eliminate the painful, repetitive process while building a BI solution. This includes manual effort to clean, filter, and structure data. This could be any reporting system, general ledger, accounting, and more.

You will also learn and implement important concepts, techniques, and activities in Power Query using different datasets from the HR, Sales, and Finance domains (Check out course outline for more clarity).

We will learn to automate common data tasks such as:

  • Get data from a single file (Excel, Text, CSV, and more)
  • Import multiple files from a given folder
  • Get data from other sources like a table/range from the web and current workbook
  • Sort & filter columns
  • Convert data types – text, numbers, dates
  • Split or merge columns
  • Merge two queries like joining in SQL
  • Add calculated columns
  • Unpivot data to use pivot tables and much more…

We will also learn some fantastic features of Power Query, such as Column from Examples. It is similar to the Flash Fill feature in Excel.

If you are planning to implement Data Analytics or Business Intelligence solutions using tools like Power BI, Tableau, Python, R, etc. then you must learn Power Query before all these tools.

Note: Power Query techniques taught in this course apply to both the versions i.e. Excel 2010+ and Power BI. However, we have used Power BI’s user-interface (UI) to teach those techniques. The same UI exists in Excel’s Power Query.
