OBJECTIVES

To enable attendees to use the Excel Power Query tools to make their use of Excel more reliable, more efficient and more automatic.

Please note this is not a ‘hands-on’ course, but will provide practical advice, demonstrated through examples and with comprehensive documentation. The Examples will be based on the latest version of Excel but where an earlier version (2010 onwards) differs substantially this will be highlighted on the course.

 Our online Excel courses are based on the use of Excel for Windows. Although many of the techniques addressed are applicable to all editions, in particular Excel for Mac, might lack some, or all, of the features covered.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

Anyone whose use of Excel goes beyond the basics and ventures into the use of lookups and conditional sums. Anyone who works with external data or data stored in Excel worksheets and hasn't yet explored the Power Query tools in detail. Even if you don't work with external data, this course should help you to create spreadsheets that are more reliable and more automatic.

This course is suitable for the levels “General User to Developer” under the ICAEW IT Faculty Spreadsheet Competency Framework. For more information visit www.icaew.com/en/technical/information-technology/excel/spreadsheet-competency-framework.
