Formerly available as the Power Query add-in, the Get & Transform tools built into Excel 2016 for Windows are incredibly powerful. At a high level, users can retrieve data from a variety of sources and prepare it for use as needed.
These tools provide new ways to approach previously manual and time-consuming tasks. In this session, apply these tools to several everyday tasks, including flattening data, splitting and combining columns, formatting data, unpivoting summarized data, and combining several .csv exports.
