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.

The aim of this exercise is to create the following Power View report:

Multiple pie charts

See overleaf for notes on how to do this!

To do this, first run the SQL script in the above folder (copying and commercial use prohibited) to generate a database called MAM.

Create a new workbook, and within this a data model combining the following tables:

  • tblAnimal
  • tblCentre
  • tblCentreType
  • tblPos
  • tblProduct
  • tblStore
  • tblTransaction

In the tblPos table, add the following new calculated columns:

Column Formula
MonthName =format([PosDate],"mm mmmm")
MonthNumber =month([PosDate])
YearNumber =year([PosDate])

To get the report working, you'll need to create a pie chart and then set vertical and horizontal multiples.  You'll also need to set the following filters:

  • The year should equal 2014
  • The month number should be 3 or less
  • The centre type should not equal Shopping Centre
  • You should use the MonthName field for the vertical multiples.

Save this workbook as Lots of pies, then close it down.
