Data in the Wild: Transforming Excel, text, and other stuff into data you can use.
Survey data got you down? Trouble slicing data just the way you want? Can't make use of those Quick Table Calculations? Why is it that sometimes data is easy to analyze in Tableau and other times it seems well-nigh impossible? This session will explore the wide variety of data out there in the world. We'll look at:
- Excel files with odd "shapes"
- Working with multiple flat files that contain separate 'chunks' of the same (or similar) data
- Free tools that can help you collect, scrape, reformat, and edit data from the web and other sources, all with the idea that all data should have the same chance to express itself!
This webinar is part of the "Talk Data to Me" webinar series which is aimed to provide tips, tricks, and how-tos to make you a smarter Tableau user. Check out the full schedule of webinars or watch one on-demand.
