Session Summary

Power Pivot Basics (Advanced) – Do you love PivotTables? Of course, we all do! Traditional PivotTables are incredible … but, they do have limitations. If you have ever encountered one of these limitations, you’ll be excited to learn that by using Power Pivot, you’ll be able to bypass many of the restrictions that exist with traditional PivotTables. Power Pivot provides a new data source for PivotTables, and essentially combines the flexibility of formula-based reports with the PivotTable engine. Microsoft provides Power Pivot free for most editions of Excel for Windows 2010 and forward (currently, it is unavailable in Excel for Mac). In this session, we’ll explore Power Pivot and the data model, build PivotTables from multiple tables, create calculated columns, and write measures. If you frequently build PivotTables and would like to do more with them, you’ll want to understand how Power Pivot can enhance your reports and workflow. Learning objectives: (1) recall the steps to access the Power Pivot window; (2) identify the process to create table relationships; and (3) state the procedure for building named sets.

1/22/2021 – Excel Series 6 – Better Together: Power Query and Power Pivot

Better Together (Power Query and Power Pivot) (Advanced) – 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.
