Before you can do this exercise, you'll need to download and unzip this file (if you have any problems doing this, click here for help).

You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.

If you haven't already done so, run the SQL script in the above folder (copying and commercial use prohibited) to generate a database called MAM.

Create a data model to include these tables (it doesn't matter what it looks like, nor do you have to hide all of the fields shown from client tools):

Data model for this example

The tables needed for this exercise.

Create a pivot table showing the number of transactions by centre and product within Leeds:

Leeds transactions

Filter your pivot table to show only data for the town Leeds.

Now add another column showing the number of transactions for each cell, but excluding Crown Point figures:

Excluding Crown Point

The figures for the first couple of products.

You'll need to use the VALUES function, as you want to amend the query context for shopping centres, not replace it.

Save this as Useful pivot table, then close it down.
