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.

If you haven't already done so, run the SQL script in the above folder in SQL Server Management Studio to generate a database (not for commercial use or copying) called MAM.  Now create a new project and model, linking to the tblAgeRange, tblProduct and tblTransaction tables.

Create a new Excel workbook, and create a connection to your model, showing the results in a Power View report.  See if you can make your report look something like this:

Power View report

The tiles choice of age group should control both the table and the chart.

Save this workbook - imaginatively - as Report, then close it and your model down.
