If you have been wasting vast amounts of time at work trying to gather, fix and combine your Excel data before you’ve ever done any analysis and reporting, then let our resident Data expert will show you how Power Query can transform the way you work!

How power query can prevent time wasting

Power Query is the No.1 Excel feature added in the last decade because it can help you get data from various sources, no matter what format it is and clean it all up for you with nothing more than a few clicks! Specifically, there are two ways Power Query saves you vast amounts of time:

  • If you have reports that are frequently updated, then you just create a ‘Query’ from a source of data then all you need to do is press refresh every time you need to update, and Power Query will carry out all the little steps needed to clean up your data
  • If you work with messy or unstructured data that consumes a lot of your time to clean up, then Power Query has some functions that instantly fix your data such as unpivoting, appending, joining and transposing to name a few

Power Query’s magic is in saving you from all the usual ways to clean up your Excel data that are far too time-consuming. But it’s not just Excel data you clean up, it’s any data from most Databases, SAP, Salesforce, SharePoint and so on. But you need to understand databases so you can be a better bridge between IT and the business.
