Power View is a data visualization tool that enables the creation of interactive charts, maps and other visuals that bring your data to life in stunning reports.
Power Query is an intuitive tool that lets you manipulate, transform, consolidate, enrich, merge and do much more with your data.
Power Query acts as an “ETL” tool which means it Extracts data from almost any data source, Transforms that data and then Loads it – in our case that’s either an Excel worksheet, Power View report or Power Pivot data model.
