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 if you haven't already done so, run the SQL script in the above folder to create a database of Make-a-Mammal data. 

From this database load the following tables:

  • tblCentre
  • tblCentreType
  • tblPurchase

Create the following bubble chart!

Bubble chart

Here we're in the middle of playing the chart - we've reached 2012. The printed page doesn't do justice to the tackiness of the bubbles shooting around the chart!

Save this as Just bubbles, then close down the Power BI instance.
