HFMA Region #1 Excel Webinar Series – Power Query Basics (Advanced)

Advanced and Intermediate

Power Query Basics (Advanced) – Wednesday, January 23, 2019

Do you ever import data into Excel, and then spend a bunch of time manually preparing it for use? Perhaps you delete extra
columns or rows. Maybe you need to split a single column into multiple columns, or, combine multiple columns into a single
column. The good news is that many of these transformations can be fully automated with Excel! Power Query is an incredibly
powerful tool that, at a high level, helps us retrieve data from a variety of sources and prepare it for use. In this session, we’ll use
Power Query to help with several common tasks, including flattening data, splitting and combining columns, formatting data,
unpivoting summarized data, and combining several csv exports. If you frequently export/import data from one system to
another, you will want to understand how to use Power Query to streamline your work. Learning objectives: (1) recall the steps to
create a new query; (2) identify commands that transform data; and (3) state the process to return the transformed data to Excel.

Mapping Tables (Intermediate) – Tuesday, January 29, 2019

When you need a report that your accounting system doesn’t provide, you probably turn to Excel to create the report. In this
session, we will explore the features, functions, and techniques needed to help automate these types of reports. For example, you
want to export a trial balance and you want Excel to pull the values into the proper lines in a balance sheet, even when the labels
are different and even when many accounts need to roll up to a single report line. By the end of the session, you’ll learn how to
structure your reporting workbook so that your Excel formulas automatically summarize the exported accounting system data.

How Do You Do This in Excel (Intermediate) – Tuesday, February 12, 2019

How do you get from your house to the store? Do you walk? Ride a bike? Drive a car? All of these methods will get you there,
but, some are faster than others. The same is true in Excel. There are often several ways to accomplish any given task in Excel.
But, not all options provide the same efficiency. For example, let’s say you need to compute a report subtotal, such as the fixed
assets subtotal. How do you do this in Excel? Do you use the SUM function? If so, it may surprise you to learn that there is a
more efficient option. In this session, we’ll examine several common Excel tasks and then discuss our options.

Better Together (Power Query and Power Pivot) (Advanced) – Wednesday, February 20, 2019

Excel users have prepared reports the same way for decades … formulas and PivotTables. Typically, we export data from an
accounting system, copy and paste it into an Excel workbook, clean and prepare it for use, and then use PivotTables and/or
functions such as VLOOKUP and SUMIFS. But, that workflow is manual and slow. In this session, we’ll use Power Query and
Power Pivot to improve our workflow. Specifically, we’ll use Power Query to get and shape external data. We’ll send the query
results into the data model. We’ll use Power Pivot to organize tables and create measures and then use them as the source for
PivotTable reports. If you frequently build formula-based or PivotTable reports, join this session to learn how Power Query and
Power Pivot can help. Learning objectives: (1) identify which tool in Excel helps to import and transform data; (2) state the
process for relating tables in Power Pivot; and (3) recall a benefit of using Power Query and Power Pivot when building
PivotTables.

The Two Most Important Excel Functions for Accountants (Intermediate) – Tuesday, February 26, 2019

We’ll discuss two Excel functions that provide incredible efficiency to accountants. One has been around for decades and is often
cited as the most popular Excel function. It is the VLOOKUP function. VLOOKUP is indeed a favorite of many accountants.
After exploring the details of VLOOKUP, we’ll examine a relatively new alternative. We’ll compare these two functions and see
which performs lookup tasks more effectively. It will be a competition, an epic battle between two of the most important Excel
functions. Who will win?
