The Excel Data Model is an in-memory multi-dimensional (OLAP) data engine available in all versions of Excel 2013 and 2016. The Data Model is the core foundation of PowerPivot, but all users can take advantage of the added power of the Data Model without this premium add-in available in Office Professional Plus and the standalone version of Excel. With the Data Model, users can 1) relate multiple Excel tables, build PivotTables on multiple Excel tables, and 3) analyze PivotTable reports using Quick Explore, which allows users to drill up, down, and around in reports. This webinar will provide the knowledge and skill necessary to take full advantage of the Excel Data Model.
