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, restore the database in the above folder into Analysis Services in Management Studio (not for copying or commercial use). The database should contain 3 dimensions and one cube called MAM.   Now create a new report, and in this the following dataset:

The start of the rows in the dataset.


Now create a list, and group it by region:

Group properties

You'll need to group the Details section by region to get your list to work.


Here's what your final report could look like:

A suggested final report

Here we're showing a table and a pie chart for each region.

Save this report as Lists are cool, then close it down.
