Do you need to combine data from different sources and report on it? Perhaps visualize the results with interactive Excel dashboards?

With Power Pivot and Excel’s Data Model, you can easily combine data from different sources. DAX enables you to write formulas that perform lightning-fast on large data.

If reporting on scattered data is something you need to do, then you’ll need to use Excel’s Power Pivot and data modelling tools. You’ll get the right start with this Excel Power Pivot DAX training.

Our courses transform careers in EVERY industry

I didn’t know anything about Power Pivot and its possibilities. I found out all new ways of treating data through this course.
Leila’s Power Pivot and DAX course is top-notch, with many practical examples, hands-on challenges, and amazing tips. She explains difficult concepts in a way that makes them easier to understand and at just the right pace.

Are You Able To Bridge The Gap Between A Spreadsheet Full Of Data And The Big Picture?

Excel users who deal with large amounts of data should be given a constant supply of Gatorade and gym towels.


Because transforming that data into meaningful reports can feel like being in an Olympic event. It is hard.

You sit there, Excel open on your computer, and groan at the sight of data everywhere.

  • You’ve got data spread across multiple tabs
  • You’re got data in a CSV file, SAP, or Oracle
  • You’ve got multiple tables that need to be combined into one

It’s like walking back into your home after your child’s birthday party.

What a mess...” 😨

So you roll up your sleeves and get to work. You know it’s going to be a late night, but the job must be done, right?

How to Bridge the Gap with Ease

Your Excel life will only reach that peaceful, Zen-state when you can bridge the gap between looking at data and presenting it.

And do it with ease.

After all, shouldn’t presenting data be the goal? What good is having data if you’re not going to present it, analyze it, and make decisions?

When you can bridge this gap, without pulling a hamstring, you finally achieve Excel nirvana.

Excel’s Data Model to the Rescue

Excel’s Data Model can relieve your burden of transforming data. It’ll do the heavy lifting, so you can get back to those thousand other tasks on your to-do list.

Specifically, a tool called Power Pivot.

Power Pivot is the second “power tool” in Excel’s power toolbox. Power Pivot is the engine that turns your raw data into useful metrics, which can then be presented via beautiful reports.

Bridge The Gap And Turn Your Data Into Meaningful Reports

How I Discovered Power Pivot

Hi, I’m Leila Gharani. I’m a Microsoft MVP and have taught Excel to over 340,000 students through my courses.

Power Pivot has been around for a while, but I never thought I needed it. I didn’t create complex models in Excel. I created reports. Of course, that was the wrong thinking. But I didn’t know at the time.

A lot of the reports I created were based on data from different places. Some reports required complex logic to get the outcome we were after. They were time-consuming to create and maintain. I needed to use a combination of VBA and crazy functions to relate the data together so I could report on it.

That was the time I decided to “test” Power Pivot, to see if it could save me time from writing another VBA routine. As with most tools, there is an “easy” side to Power Pivot and an “advanced” side. The easy side was all I needed for that report. With just a few drag-and-drops and a few clicks my report was done.

No VBA, no formulas! It was that easy!

I was so excited by the possibilities that I went on to learn DAX which is the formula language of the Data model. With DAX (Data Analysis Expressions) you can create your own custom functions and KPIs. It all turned out to be so much easier than I’d imagined.

Today, I’d like to invite you to bridge the gap between fetching data and presenting it.

Introducing: The Excel Power Pivot & DAX Training Course

This step-by-step online course helps you quickly create reports others might find impossible to do.

  • No longer will you run out of steam after importing your data.
  • No longer will you be asking, “What’s next?”, once you have your dataset prepared.
  • No longer will you struggle with VLOOKUPs, multiple pivot tables, merging datasets, and the many other problems faced by Excel users who haven’t learned PowerPivot.

Working for my client, a multinational manufacturing company, the head of procurement asked me to make a model to track the steel prices, as steel is a large component of their cost.

I have worked for the past 10 years as a management consultant and am considered an Excel expert by virtually all my clients and colleagues. My initial model was built without Power Query/PowerPivot. It took me at least 21 man-days to build as client requests changed and the model became increasingly complex.

In the final days of making the model, it became clear that although it worked, it was hardly sustainable: it took me 4 hours (I’ve got the recordings) to explain to the client how the model works and needs to be updated.

Around the same time, I started Leila’s DAX and Power Query course. Based on her teachings, I agreed with the client to rebuild the model, generating the same output but through PQ/DAX. It took me 10 full working days to set it up – including at least 70% of time just waiting for PQ to load the data, while I followed the courses. The result: a virtually fully automated report that was more dynamic than the first one.

After this second iteration, and being much more comfortable with PQ/DAX, I decided to build the same model with everything else Leila taught me while I was making the second iteration of the model. Now, using locally stored representative snippets of the client files (to avoid long loading times) I built an even better version of the report in under a day.

Bottom line: from a 21-day unusable model to a 1-day fully dynamic and automated report thanks to Leila. A steep learning curve, but I’ll never use Excel in the same way again.

An awesome approach from Excel perspective for DAX users.

Leila really took her time to dissect and explain what was happening behind the scene with the DAX functions in Power Pivot where she uses slicers and other tools to clearly explain the behavior of the functions.

The Filter and Row context as well as Evaluation Context and Context Transition has been well explained with visuals that make you grasp this difficult DAX concept. A 5-Star Rated Course.

It’s Like Three Courses in One

This course is more like three courses in one. Why?

Because PowerPivot, DAX, and Dashboards work together like a 3-person sports team.

You might be wondering, “What the heck is DAX?

DAX stands for Data Analysis Expressions. DAX formulas are like standard Excel formulas – but on steroids. You can do all sorts of powerful calculations you couldn’t do otherwise.

(My favorites are the time intelligence functions. If you work with data that is spread out over days, months, or years – you’ll fall in love with these DAX formulas.)

You also learn how to combine your data model with “standard” Excel features to create dynamic dashboards that solve real-life challenges.

Finally, if you have aspirations of using Power BI, you must know DAX and the data model. It’s a pre-requisite for taking advantage of Power BI.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this too advanced for me?

You should be familiar with the general functionality in Excel (Formulas and Pivot Tables). If you’ve taken our Excel Essentials course, then you can directly jump in to this one. You might be intimidated by words like “Power Pivot” and “Data Model.” Don’t be.

Sure, Excel masters love these power tools. But these tools offer plenty of fun for beginners, too. You simply need the right start so you can get the most benefit with the least effort.

When I first saw DAX, I made the mistake of viewing the advanced features. It scared me off.

It took a while to realize there were more beginner-friendly features available.

I use Power Query. Do I still need this course?

👏🏼 Congratulations! You’ve already moved up to the power side of Excel.

Power Query can solve many data transformation challenges but not all. This course will show you how to combine both Power Query and the data model to create efficient reports.

I’ve already taken Power Pivot and DAX classes before. Can I still benefit?

DAX is not easy to teach. I struggled finding a good teacher when I was learning it myself. I’m a visual person and I need to see the processes to understand them. I had to go through multiple books and courses to make sense of some of the concepts. Finally I managed to create a visual model that made sense to me. Slowly everything started to fall into place. I’ll be sharing that model with you in the course.

Plus here are some the topics our more advanced members enjoyed:

  • How to optimize your data model with smart decisions
  • The Power of the CALCULATE function
  • Understand Row Context and Context transition once and for all
  • Difference between VALUES and ALL functions
  • When to use RELATED and when to rely on the relationships in the model
  • How to handle many to one & many to many relationships
  • More complex functions like CONCATENATEX, TOPN and RANKX
  • Time intelligence functions for YTD and previous period calculations, running totals and moving averages.

When does the course start and finish?

You’ll take this Excel Power Pivot DAX Training course in your own time. It is a completely self-paced online course – so you decide when you start and when you finish.

How long do I have access to the course?

How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like – across any and all devices you own.

What if I am unhappy with the course?

We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact us at in the first 14 days and we will give you a full refund.

What if I have questions about the lessons? Can I get those answered?

Yes! Most online courses leave you on your own, but not here at XelPlus.

We have a team of helpful teaching assistants (TA’s) ready to answer your questions about each lesson. Below each lesson, you’ll find a comment section where you can ask a question about the topic. Our TA’s will chime in and do their best to help you.

What are the course requirements?

This course is designed for Excel on Windows – Power Pivot is currently NOT available in native Mac.

You should have Microsoft Excel 2016 standalone or higher (Recommended: Office 365 / Office 2021) – Power Pivot is a part of Excel 2013 standalone but it’s quite buggy. It’s recommended to use the later Office versions. Check out this link to find out if your version has Power Pivot or not.

Who can I contact if I have questions not addressed?

You can contact us at

I always felt comfortable in the course. Leila has a friendly and relaxed way of teaching, and Team XELPLUS delivers valuable work in answering truly tricky questions. I needed quite a bit of time, but it was also a lot of fun.

I currently help friends with their Excel problems such as organizing triathlon events or a small advertising company with the ordering system for t-shirts. My clear advice is to take both Power Pivot & DAX and Power-Query courses, so you are well-equipped for most requirements.
