Though many professionals use Excel on a daily basis, Excel has many undiscovered functions that can increase productivity even further. In this course, we will explore one of the relatively new tools brought by Excel to help professionals in cleaning up and preparing data for further analysis and reporting: Power Query. This tool is available as an "Add In" on Excel 2013 but comes readily available on Excel 2016 and newer versions. In addition, we will cover many features of pivot tables which is the main reporting tool in Excel. We will also take a look at PowerPivots, another powerful tool in Excel which will put your pivot tables on turbo. While pivot tables have some limitations, PowerPivots can be used when you have significantly big data. The last part of the course is dedicated to automating your Excel reports and reconciliation through the use of macros.
This is the second course after the "Next Generation Excel: Advanced Business and Financial Reporting" course.
