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.

Create a new Power BI Desktop file, and get a list of the top 1000 films of all time, as rated by They Shoot Pictures, Don't They?   You can find the link you need at this page of our website.
