Do you work with data that has been exported from a system of record?  This could be a general ledger, accounting, SAP, Access, or any reporting system that contains data.

If so, you probably spend a lot of time transforming or re-shaping your data to create additional reports, pivot tables, or charts.

Power Query will save you time spent on repetitive tasks.

Power Query is Get and Transform on the Data tab. It is a built-in feature from Excel 2016 upwards.

What Power Query can do:

  • Keeps file size small  while storing volumes of data
  • Transforms and cleans data
  • Keeps an audit trail of all changes
