In this advanced Excel course, we look at three crucial advanced Excel features Power Pivot, Power Query, and DAX.
This suite of Excel functions allows you to manipulate, analyze, and evaluate millions of rows of data from Excel or other databases.
We first look at how to bring your data together, merge, and clean it using Power Query before moving onto creating relationships between our data tables and building out a data model. We then look at performing calculations on our data model using DAX, and finally, we look at displaying our analysis using PivotTables and PivotCharts.
If you’ve reached a point where you need Excel to work with data at scale, then these tools will unlock that capability.
This course also includes practice exercises and follow-along files so you can build your data models as we go.
