Pivot and Unpivot data with these tips

Do you work with "Big Data"? Do you import, manipulate and analyse massive datasets in Excel? If so you’ll already be familiar with the limitations of Excel. Power Pivot and Power Query, two free addins for Excel, are designed to get you past these limitations, allowing you to import and work with 1-million-plus-row datasets from virtually any source.

If you ever need to create pivot tables from multiple datasets, Power Pivot is your friend. No more vlookup. No more multiple consolidation ranges. If you’ve been frustrated by other limitations of pivot tables then Power Pivot is for you. Simply put, Power Pivot takes pivot tables and data analysis to the next level. If you’re a fan of pivot tables, you’ll love Power Pivot.

Power Query can save you a ton of time when working with imported data. In many cases when you get data from external sources, it needs work on it before it can be used.  Although this can be done using Excel functionality, Power Query is a lot faster, can handle much more data, and is repeatable with a couple of clicks.
