55142 - Microsoft Excel 2013 PowerPivot (1 Day)

About this Course

PowerPivot is a powerful data exploration tool based on in-memory computing technologies that provides unmatched analytical performance to process billions of rows almost instantaneously. In this Microsoft Excel 2013 PowerPivot Training course, students will learn how to use PowerPivot to import and manipulate data, create PowerPivot reports, use DAX functions, create key performance indicators (KPI) and use slicers and hierarchies to enhance the visualization of data. Exercises accompany each lesson to enhance the learning process. The courseware covers the buttons on the PowerPivot tab and accompanying tabs for creating and editing tables and charts. The power in PowerPivot is the ability to import data from multiple sources. The course provides examples using an Access database, copy and paste, text file and Excel file. In addition, calculated fields and columns are defined and used to enhance your PivotTable.
