Hear why this is one of the TOP-RATED Excel courses on Udemy, and the #1 Excel Power Query + Excel Power Pivot course:
"I am a self-taught Excel Power Query user and it took me a while to understand what each tool does and how it interacts with others. Thanks to your introduction I finally nailed it in a very clear, unambiguous way. You helped me build a method that I can confidently apply to my data in Excel. Thank you so much!"
"I'm less of an expert at breathing than Chris is at Excel. This course is thorough and well-planned, and he presents in a manner that simplifies the complicated. Well worth your time if you want to master Excel power query and power pivot!"
"I'm geeking out, this is so cool. Where has this been all my life???"
This course introduces Microsoft Excel's powerful data modeling and business intelligence tools: Power Query, Power Pivot, and Data Analysis Expressions (DAX). If you're looking to become a power Excel user and absolutely supercharge your Excel analytics game, this course is the A-Z guide that you're looking for.
I'll introduce the "Power Excel" landscape, and explore what these Excel tools are all about and why they are changing the world of self-service business intelligence. Together, we'll walk through the Excel BI workflow, and build an entire Excel data model from scratch:
First we'll get hands-on with Power Query; a tool to extract, transform, and load data into Excel from flat files, folders, databases, API services and more. We'll practice shaping, blending and exploring our project files in Excel's query editor, and create completely automated loading procedures inside of Excel with only a few clicks.
From there we'll dive into Data Modeling 101, and cover the fundamentals of database design and normalization (including table relationships, cardinality, hierarchies and more). We'll take a tour through the Excel data model interface, introduce some best practices and pro tips, and then create our own relational database to analyze throughout the course.
Finally, we'll use Power Pivot and DAX to explore and analyze our Excel data model. Unlike traditional Excel Pivot Tables, Power Pivot allows you to analyze hundreds of millions of rows across multiple data tables (inside of Excel!), and create supercharged calculated fields using a formula language called Data Analysis Expressions (or "DAX" for short). We'll cover basic DAX syntax, then introduce some of the most powerful and commonly-used functions -- CALCULATE, FILTER, SUMX and more.
If you're ready to take your Excel game to new heights and join the leading edge of analytics & business intelligence, this course is for you. It's time to stop fighting with tedious, manual tasks and struggling with "old-school" Excel; join me on this journey and emerge a certified excel analytics NINJA.
See you in there!

Walkthrough to cover exactly how the course is structured and what you need to know before diving into Power Query, Power Pivot and DAX tools.
Before getting started with the course, it's important to make sure that you are using a version of Excel that is compatible with Power Pivot. Check the Microsoft Office Support website to make sure that you are using a proper version.
In this lecture I'll explain why Power Query and Power Pivot are so awesome that they've been called the "best thing to happen to Excel in 20 years" from industry experts. We'll talk about the ability to load hundreds of millions of rows, build data models to blend data across sources, automate your data loading and ETL process, and create powerful calculated fields using data analysis expressions (DAX).
The Query Editor is your command center when it comes to loading and transforming raw data in Excel using Power Query. In this lecture we'll take a tour of the tools that we'll use to transform and shape our data.
This lecture demystifies the concept of "pivoting" or "unpivoting" a data table. I'll show you exactly what these tools do, and demonstrate with a sample table in the Excel Query Editor.
This lecture outlines the two views within the Excel data model: Data view and Diagram view. Data view allows you to access the data within tables (organized as tabs), and diagram view allows you to create and view your table relationships and overall data model.
This lecture explores the concept of cardinality, and demonstrates the differences between 1-to-1, 1-to-many, and many-to-many relationships. I'll also show you exactly why 1-to-many relationships are critical when it comes to building normalized data models in Excel.
In this lecture I'll explore the similarities and differences between regular Excel PivotTables and "Power" PivotTables, which connect to entire data models.
In this lecture I'll introduce the most powerful means of creating measures: building calculated explicit measures using the Power Pivot dialog box in Excel. This is where you can use complex combinations of DAX functions to create incredibly powerful and flexible measures.
In this lecture I'll introduce you to iterator, or "X" functions, which operate by repeating a calculation across all rows in a table and aggregating the results. In this demo we'll look at the SUMX function specifically, and compare it against the traditional Excel SUMPRODUCT function.
In this lecture we'll introduce DAX's powerful time intelligence formulas, and demonstrate how to use them to measure performance-to-date, make period-over-period comparisons, and calculate running totals and moving averages.
In this lecture I'll provide a quick sneak peek into Microsoft Power BI, a standalone application built on the same exact tools covered in this course (Power Query, Power Pivot and DAX).
