If you book a Wise Owl course you will now automatically have access to a PDF version of the manual (rest assured that you can still choose to get a bound paper copy too). Read why we have taken so long to make this change, and how will it work.
Excel has a new image function, which allows you to include pictures within cells: it's fun, and easy to use! Excel also now has a short-cut key to invoke Power Query; our blog about this includes a few useful short-cut keys we unearthed in researching this and didn't previously know about, together with our nomination for the most pointless short-cut key in Excel.
The December update of Power BI made slicer formatting more sensible and introduced the new INDEX, OFFSET and WINDOW DAX functions, but we also noticed a new feature to reset visual formatting which appeared some time in January without fanfare. Staying with the Power BI theme, RADACAD's clean-up tool allows you to see which columns and tables you're not using, among other things.
Although we've had marketing help before (most notably from Karen), we've never had an in-house (albeit part-time) marketing manager. Until now, that is! A big welcome to Simone, who extends the Wise Owl family in more ways than one.
From a field of 14 entries, we're pleased to say that Stephen Mulford of Newham Council is the winner of our bumper £100 Amazon voucher prize (as promised, entries were weighted by their scores, so people who got more questions right had a better chance of winning). You can see a list of the answers here, along with explanations of why each series continued in the way that it did.
