This course is No. 7 in the Microsoft® Power BI® series of webinars. Data can be messyl; in other words, it is not always clean and neat. Data comes from various sources like text files, Excel® spreadsheets, databases, report files, etc. This is where most data analysis project fail … the inability to get the correct data. This class focuses on using Power Query (Get and Transform in Excel 2016) to clean, shape, and transform your messy data while still allowing you one click refresh.
