Some of the things you will learn in this course:

Power Pivot basics

Gain a basic knowledge base in Power Pivot by first downloading and creating a shortcut to Power Pivot as an add-in for Excel. Retrieving data from external sources correctly is the most important step for the program, and in this course you will learn to do just that.

Relationships and columns

Relationships are an essential building block of working in Power Pivot, where many different kinds of relationships are created between separate databases. You can connect columns from one database to another to create completely new information as well as new ways of looking at the data you’re working with.


Measures are calculations that are applied to large amounts of data for data analysis. This course gives you an introduction to the concept and how to use it to provide new insight into your data.

Data Analysis Expression (DAX) formulas

DAX formulas are special measures that can take in multiple columns as arguments and can process big data in a way that Excel cannot. Learn the most common and useful DAX formulas as well as how  these measures work.

A lesson from the course

In this lesson from the course Power Pivot & DAX, you’ll learn about relationships. This is one of the lessons in the chapter Relations & columns. What differentiates Power Pivot from regular pivot tables is that we can retrieve external data from multiple places and perform extensive pivot table analysis. Where we would normally have to write a lot of VLOOKUP formulas to find related data among different databases, we can make the job easy with the help of relationships. A relation is a connection between two tables of data, based on one or more columns in each table. Power Pivot allows you to take multiple data sources and combine the data tables into a coherent database called a relational database. Power Pivot & DAX is a basic course in Power Pivot and DAX, which requires some knowledge in Excel. Power Pivot is an Excel add-in that can be used for data analysis and for creating data models. Power Pivot uses the DAX formula language that allows the user to create new information using calculations.
