Stop Pasting and Start Using Power Query

Do you know the #1 command used in Excel? Paste … that’s why it is the first icon on the Home tab.
But, Excel has come a long way in the past 3 decades. We can gain a LOT of efficiency by getting and preparing data with Power Query instead of pasting it.

In this complimentary 60-minute webinar, I’ll introduce Power Query and demonstrate how it can help you get your work done faster.

Attendees receive a free e-book to keep for reference 🙂

Additional Information / Webinar Agenda

Often, Excel users use the Paste command to get and prepare data. For example, we export data from an accounting system into a CSV file, and then do a Copy/Paste to get it into the Excel workbook. Then, if the data needs to be cleaned up, for example we need to reorder the columns, we may Cut a column and Paste it into the desired location. Paste is great, but, it is a manual step. In this webinar we’ll look at how we can use Power Query to get and clean data and eliminate these types of manual steps from our recurring-use workbooks.

To explore Power Query, we’ll do these things:

  • Unpivot summarized data
  • Get data from a csv file into Excel
  • Reformat data
  • Pick and choose rows and columns
  • Combine many csv files into a single Excel table

And, we’ll do all of them without Pasting 🙂

I’ll then talk about how to learn more about Power Query and earn 12 CPE credits while doing so.

Free e-book! Attendees will receive a free e-book to keep as a reference.
