PowerPivot | Transforming data (Power Query) exercise | Split column to divide exchange rates and share prices
This exercise is provided to allow potential course delegates to choose the correct Wise Owl Microsoft training course, and may not be reproduced in whole or in part in any format without the prior written consent of Wise Owl.
You can learn how to do this exercise on the relevant Wise Owl classroom training course (sadly for the moment only in the UK).
You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.
In a new workbook, use Power Query to link to the workbook called Tables in the above folder, and choose the Exchange Rates table.
Tell Power Query you want to use the first row as column headers to get:
We'll split the first column into two.
Split the first column and then rename and remove columns to get the following table, then load this data into Excel:
The final table.
Too easy? Create a similar query for the Share Prices table in the Tables workbook, to load this into Excel:
The final table will split each investment into the name and the code.
Save this workbook as Splitting Columns, then close it down.
