Do you import data into Excel from other sources (such as CSV files, text files, web pages, databases or SharePoint)? Does the data that you import need to be "cleaned" before it can be used? (cleaning refers to things like removing duplicate rows, removing blank rows, removing unnecessary columns, converting case, changing date formats and more). Do you spend more time than necessary performing data cleaning tasks? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, you need to learn how to use Power Query! If you work with, analyze and generate reports from large datasets, having a good understanding and working knowledge of Power Query is a must!
