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 load the Excel workbook in the above folder into it.  Use this to create the following donut chart:

Donut chart

Here we've moved the legend to the left centre, set a title and customised data label settings.

Now right-click to exclude South Asia and East Asia & Pacific from your chart (they're too big), and turn it into a tree chart looking similar to this:

Tree chart

Here we've made the colours a bit pastellier (is there such a word?).

Save this file as Donuts and trees, then close down this instance of Power BI Desktop.
