This exercise is provided to allow potential course delegates to choose the correct Wise Owl Microsoft training course, and may not be reproduced in whole or in part in any format without the prior written consent of Wise Owl.
This will generate the database that you'll need to use in order to do this exercise (note that the database and script are only to be used for exercises published on this website, and may not be reused or distributed in any form without the prior written permission of Wise Owl).
If you haven't already done so, create a new project called BaseModel, and import the following tables: Centre, CentreType, Environment, Family, Habitat, Product, Purchase, Region and Town.
Import the wo_calendar table if you haven't already done so (and rename it to Calendar), then create a relationship via the purchase date column:
Link the calendar and purchase tables together by the purchase date.
The aim of this exercise is to create an absolute KPI, showing for each product whether its proportion of total sales is 5% or more of the total.
There are 19 products in total, so it is unlikely that each product will meet or exceed its KPI!
To get started, create the measures that you'll need:
|Measure||What it calculates|
|ThisProduct||The total value of sales (price * quantity) for any query context.|
|AllProducts||The total value of sales for any query context, but disregarding any product constraint (use CALCULATE combined with ALL).|
|Proportion||The first measure divided by the second.|
Create an absolute KPI for the Proportion measure: you're aiming for 5% (which you'll need to type in as 0.05), with an amber threshold of 0.03, to show:
Only 5 products are meeting their targets (Sammy, Englebert and Yoko are crowding out the other products).
Save your workbook as Strange bedfellows, then close it down.
