  • You work with data that needs to be imported from various sources
  • You do the following tasks regularly - import the data, clean/transform it, create reports from it 
  • You need to combine data from multiple files, folders, databases, or web pages

Power Query - Why You Should Care?

Power Query is a relatively new tool in Excel that allows you to fetch data from multiple sources, clean and transform this data with a few clicks, and use it for creating reports, dashboards, and Pivot Tables.

I don't think I can do justice to Power Query's awesomeness by explaining it in 2 lines, so let me try and explain it with an example.

Tell me this - How much time would it take for you to combine data from 12-15 workbooks into a single data set? A few minutes or may be an hour I suppose...right?

If you're using Power Query, you can combine the data from all the workbooks in a few clicks.

Time taken: Less than a minute!

And what if you get a set of new workbooks next month?

Well - it only takes a few seconds now. Since you've already done it once, you simply REFRESH.

So to better frame it - Power Query allows you to connect to multiple data sources (be it files, folders, databases, web pages, etc.), fetch the data in a few seconds, clean the data with a few clicks, and then load it in Excel or data model for further use.

And when new data knocks, you simply refresh.

Below is a short demo of Power Query in action:

Power Query is not meant for Excel Pros only. Anyone who is comfortable with Excel can use this tool to automate their work. It has an easy to use interface and all you need to know is how to use it the right way.

How Can You Get Power Query? 

If you're using Excel 2016, Power Query is already available in your Excel workbooks. It's called 'Get & Transform' and is available in the Data tab.

If you're using Excel 2010 or 2013, then you can download and install the Power Query add-in (it's absolutely FREE). I cover this in the course.

Unfortunately, if you're using Excel versions before 2010, or using Excel for Mac, Power Query is not available to you.

Learn Power Query - The Fast and Easy Way

Power Query comes with a different interface and a lot of new functionalities. At first, you may find it overwhelming, but if you learn Power Query in a structured way - it's not difficult at all.

When I was learning Power Query, I had to go through a few books and the help section articles. A fragmented approach of learning made it difficult. But you don't need to go through the long and tedious process.

I have created this Power Query course to give you a complete overview of the tool, and then show you the awesome things you can do with it.

If you're able to use Power Query to automate even a little bit of your work, your time and investment in learning Power Query would worth it.

Meet The Instructor

I am Sumit Bansal, your instructor in this Power Query course. Over the past 10 years, I have trained thousands of people in using Excel efficiently. I have also been recognized by Microsoft as an Excel Most Valuable Professional (MVP).

I have been learning and working with Power Query for some time now. Since it's a relatively new tool - with new features/functionalities frequently being added to it - I noticed a lack of good learning resources.

Sure there are some books and random videos, but a structured step-by-step process to learn Power Query is missing.

So, I created this course to help people learn Power Query form scratch - the fast and easy way.

Thank you so much for your tutorials and guidelines, I can say it has really made me a pro in the office due to the knowledge I've been able to get from you.
