Description

* This course is #2 in the Microsoft Power BI series of webinars. *

 
Before you can analyze data, you first must get the data. This course focuses on getting data into Excel using different data sources.  Whether your data is text, comma delimited (CSV), reports, Excel, databases, web, applications and/or many others, Excel provides the ability to access that data.   
 
You will learn about tools that have been added to Excel that will make accessing that data even easier, such as data models and Power Query (Get and Transform).  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 during the event.
