New features added to Excel beginning with the 2016 release offer tremendous opportunities to improve Excel-based reporting, for both financial and operational reporting. Data models, Power Query, Data Analysis Expressions, Power Pivot, and many other tools can help you to create more powerful reports and schedules in less time than ever. Bundle these tools with some of Excel's "legacy" features, and you have significant new opportunities to improve your Excel-based reporting environments. In this fast-paced seminar, you will learn about the importance of using Power Query to link data into Excel data models and how you can manage these data models to facilitate better and more efficient reporting. Additionally, you will learn how you can incorporate tools such as Key Performance Indicators, Slicers, and Timelines into your reports to enhance the analytics and understandability of the data. Further, you will learn best practices to quickly and easily format your spreadsheets to give them a polished and professional appearance. If you use Excel for any reporting process, this is a must-attend course in 2021.
