What is Power Query?

Microsoft’s Data Connectivity and Data Preparation technology that lets you seamlessly access data stored in hundreds of sources and reshape it to fit your needs—all with an easy to use, engaging, no-code experience.

Connect to hundreds of data sources

Power Query supports hundreds of data sources with built-in connectors, generic interfaces (such as REST APIs, ODBC, OLE, DB and OData) and the Power Query SDK to build your own connectors.

Accessible, powerful, smart data preparation

Access more than 300 transformations in the Power Query Editor, letting you transform data easier and with more flexibility than any other tool—including smart AI-based data transformations.

No coding needed

Anyone can start connecting, cleaning, transforming, and combining data today—try it and see.
