Power Query is how Expert Excel Consultants Program their Clients’ Dynamic Business Solutions

Build files that are easy to use.  Microsoft Excel files should be so easy to use that the average office worker can use them.  Power Query, allows you to simplify the data update process.

When a professional Excel consultant programs an Excel file for their client, one of the primary thoughts going through their head, and through their design, is this, how easy can I make this for the user.  How far can I push simplicity, for the user?

Most importantly, how much time can I save the user, each time they run the application.

Use Power Query to Automate the Update Process Business?

Simplify the data update process for your business clients, use Power Query to transform (ETL) your data.

Your users will love you or the effort.

In the image above, we use an Excel Table to house the variable inputs for Power Query.  In this case, the variables are network paths, to specific folders.  The user can select a path from the drop-down list in the Excel Table, and then simply hit RefreshAll, and Power Query will go out, grab the data, pull it into Power Query, and then it will transform the data, without the use of Excel functions or VBA.

This is one of the ways Power Query simplifies the update process in Excel.  The goal is to take the user out of the equation, out of the update process, build the files to update themselves.  This is just one way, but there are more, many many more.

Power Query will Change the way you program Microsoft Excel

 

Microsoft Power Query is one of the most amazing and most powerful features inside Microsoft Excel.  Microsoft Power Query integrates with Excel Tables and Excel Pivot Tables, natively.  What does this mean to you?  It means that you can build a much better business solutions, with fewer moving parts, in a fraction of the time of traditional Excel solutions, based on formulas and VBA.

The way we all program in Excel is changing quickly, if we are staying current.  For example, the new GroupBy Function, you can easily summarize the contents of a data table, with one function, in one cell.  No need to create rows, columns, headers, etc.  One Spill Cell, one function, that populates a range.   This is not the Excel that your mother used.
