You often have to re-edit the data you enter into Power Pivot: splitting up the text into different columns, converting text to upper case, adding extra columns with certain calculations, filling up blank cells and much more. This means that you cannot use certain sources straight away, because you first need to delete unnecessary information. Or because that information has a different layout. With the aid of Power Query you can get around these problems without difficulty. You input the data, define what is to be done and then enter the optimised data, in Excel, or in the Power Pivot data model. And this without programming in VBA!
Anyone who ends up having to re-edit data before it can be used in Excel or in PowerPivot .
A sound knowledge of Excel is required. Knowledge of PowerPivot is not required.
