I was registered but unfortunately could not attend at the last minute.  Was the webinar recorded?

Thank you.

Wrong time of day for NZ so watched recorded version rather than gracing you with my presence. Good work Matt, some good info here to remind us that Excel & PowerBI are complementary and not exclusive.
