Course Description

Get & Transform Data is an Excel feature available within the newest versions of Excel. It is a business intelligence tool  that allows you to retrieve data from a variety of sources, clean it and then transform or refine the data as needed. For example, you can import a database file, parse data, split or combine columns, change data types, group data and more. You can then take that transformed data back into Excel and analyze it using your preferred methods. What makes this feature exciting is that Excel records all your steps so  the data in the file can automatically be refreshed with Excel retrieving the source data, applying the same steps and updating the file for you. This is a huge time saver and will also reduce errors.

Version:   **This feature is only available in Excel versions starting with Excel 2016 but not all 2016 versions have it. ** To, see if you have this feature, simply click on the Data tab in Excel.
