Do you work with “Big Data”? Do you import and manipulate large datasets in Excel? If so you’ll already be familiar with the limitations of Excel. Power Query, (known as Get and Transform in Excel 2016) is designed to get you past these limitations, allowing you to import and work with 1-million-plus-row datasets from virtually any source.
Power Query / Get and Transform can save you a ton of time when working with imported data. In many cases when you get data from external sources, it needs work on it before it can be used. Although this can be done using Excel functionality, Power Query / Get and Transform is a lot faster, can handle much more data, and is repeatable with a couple of clicks.
If you work with, analyze and generate reports from large datasets, having a good understanding and working knowledge of Power Query / Get and Transform is a must!
