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 import into it the 2015/16 crime statistics in the Excel workbook in the above folder (you can see where the data came from at this page, although there are a lot of datasets to choose from there!).

Delete columns in Query Editor so that you're left with these ones:

Crime data

The only columns you'll need for this exercise.

Now create a text box, 3 slicers and a chart to compare the number of crimes for any type of offence across the police forces of England and Wales:

Offence group chart

You may find this frustrating, as the slicers will affect each other, and it can be difficult to cancel your slicer selections.

Save this as Set fire to the brain, and close down your current instance of Power BI Desktop.
