Course Description

In this online class you will learn how to make connections to data and then modify the data to meet your data analysis needs. Power Query is a powerful data tool that helps Excel users clean up and transform data. The steps are recorded and then the same query can be used every time you need to clean up a similar file. We often get files from various sources that need to be cleaned up before they can be used. This class will show you a tool that can often help with that cleanup.

NOTE: You must have a good understanding of Excel Tables and PivotTables before you take this class. You must also have either Office 365 or Office 2016.
