Chapter 2 – Getting Your Data Into PowerPivot

August 16, 2010 at 11:08 AM Leave a comment

One of the great things about PowerPivot is that you can mash up data from many different sources. For example, you can:

  • Copy and paste Excel data to PowerPivot
  • Link to data in Access, SQL Server, Oracle, Teradata
  • Link to data in an Excel worksheet, once the worksheet has been converted to a Table with Ctrl+T
  • Import data from a simple text file
