Preparing data sources for analysis using Power Query
Data is all around us. We get it from many sources and don’t always have control of its format or layout, which can make it difficult to analyse, draw insights from and visualise.
Power Query (part of Excel and Power BI) gives you the tools to connect to many data sources and apply transformations including merging, shaping and cleansing.
