Room: Frisco

Format: Deep Dive

This session demonstrates the powerful query capabilities available when creating projects in Power BI Desktop. Attendees will learn how queries created with Power BI Desktop to extract and transform data from unstructured text files, Excel Workbooks, Access databases, SQL Server databases, SQL Azure databases, SQL Server Analysis Services and SharePoint lists. This session also shows how to create queries that merge columns and append rows from multiple data sources into a single output table. Along the way, attendees will also see how to write data extraction scripts in the R programming language which can be used as the underlying data source for a query in Power BI Desktop to solve problems such as extracting data from files inside a zip archive and querying large SharePoint lists.
