Your data is only as good as the information you can derive from it. Power Pivot enables you to gain better business insights and make more informed business decisions.

If you want to take your reporting capabilities to the next level by learning how to leverage the functionality of Power Pivot, this is a must-attend training session!

Why should you Attend: NOTE: This course is not appropriate for Mac or iPad users as the functionality does not exist on those platforms.

Whilst Pivot Tables offer valuable data summarization features, they also have several limitations. They struggle with handling large datasets, they lack the ability to combine data from multiple datasets and the built-in calculation functionality is very simplistic.

This training focuses on the Data Model and Power Pivot, two of Excel's hidden gems which help to overcome the built-in limitations. For example, using Power Pivot you can…

  • Create Pivot Tables from multiple lists/tables without the need to combine them into a single list first (goodbye LOOKUP and all the issues that it brings)
  • Create Pivot Tables from large datasets without worrying about file size, performance or needing more rows than an Excel worksheet contains
  • Create Pivot Tables from multiple data sources (Excel, database, text file etc)
  • Create powerful calculations on the data in your Pivot Tables
  • And more

For anyone who is serious about taking their Pivot Tables to the next level, this course is a must!

Areas Covered in the Session:
  • What is The Data Model and why is it important?
  • Importing data into the Data Model - the why and how
  • Using the Data Model to create and manage relationships between tables
  • Creating a Pivot Table from related Excel tables
  • Creating a Pivot Table from related data sources (including external sources)
  • An introduction to the DAX formula language to create simple calculated columns

Who Will Benefit:
  • This training is aimed at users of Excel (2010 and above for Windows) who wish to learn about Power Pivot & The Data Model. Attendees should have at least intermediate knowledge of Excel and be familiar with formulas and creating Pivot tables
