If you work with data, you’re likely already familiar with common frustrations with Microsoft Excel like size limitations and manually entering data from multiple sources. Luckily there are two Microsoft tools- Excel PowerPivot and PowerQuery—that solve ALL of these issues, right inside Excel. No Access databases or IT department help needed. With imports of 1-million-plus rows of data sets from virtually any source and the ability to save query definitions, you can completely overhaul your reporting and analysis workflow.
