Before you can analyze data, you first must get the data. This course focuses on getting data into a data model and then working with that data. Attendees will learn the importance of having data in a data model versus in a spreadsheet. We will introduce some of the basic features of Power Query (or Get and Transform in Excel 2016) and how it removes many of the roadblocks to getting data.

You will learn how you can eliminate the use of the resource sucking VLOOKUP function by using the efficient Relationship feature. After this class, you will finally be able to get the data you need to perform data analysis.

This event may be a rebroadcast of a live event and the instructor will be available to answer your questions either during or after the event.
