Data can be messy. Since data comes from various sources, like text files, Excel spreadsheets, databases and report files, it is not always clean and neat. This inability to get the correct and clean data is exactly why most data analysis projects fail.

This webcast focuses on using Power Query, as well as Get and Transform in Excel 2016, to clean, shape and transform your messy data while still allowing you the one-click refresh. We will review various data issues including appending files, combining multiple files from a folder, adding custom columns, unpivoting data, creating a lookup table and much more.
