Power Query is the best way to bring data from other sources such as PDF, Excel files, SharePoint, websites, and databases into Excel. In Power Query, steps are performed to clean and prepare the data and then load it to the Excel sheet, a PivotTable, or stored and used in the data model.

What was once difficult, time consuming and would often involve advanced formulas or macros, is now easy thanks to Power Query.

Power Query is possibly the single best feature to appear in Excel in the last 20 years.

If you work with a lot of data, you simply must learn how to use Power Query.

NB: A laptop is required for the course.
