This webcast focuses on using the Power Pivot features to enhance data analysis. We will review the 4 features of Power Pivot (data model, calculations, hierarchies and KPIs) and you will learn how you can use each of these features. Although, the majority of the time will be spent on building the data model and using calculations.
You will learn how to add data to your data model either directly into Power Pivot or from Power Query. We will discuss the benefits of the data model relationships versus using the VLOOKUP function to access data in different tables.
One of the strengths of Power Pivot is the formula language called DAX (Data Analysis eXpressions). We will introduce DAX so that you can use basic DAX formulas to build various calculations in the data model. You will learn the difference between calculated columns and measures as we build these various calculations into our data model.
This series is presented using Excel 2019/Office 365. Regardless of the version you are using, most concepts covered in this webcast series apply to all versions of Excel. However, in order to follow along and apply concepts being taught during this session, you need to have the Power Pivot add-in installed.
