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.

Create a new project/model, and import into it the following tables:

  • tblAnimal
  • tblCentre
  • tblCentreType
  • tblPos
  • tblProduct
  • tblStore
  • tblTransaction

Add the following calculated columns to the Pos table:

Column Formula
MonthName =format([PosDate],"mm mmmm")
MonthNumber =month([PosDate])
YearNumber =year([PosDate])

Now go into Excel 2013, and create a data connection, displaying the data resulting from this in a Power View report. 

In this report, create the following chart:

Multiple pie chart

You'll need to add the following Power View filters: year = 2014, month <= 3, centre type is NOT shopping centre.

Save this workbooks as Pie fiesta, then close it and the project down.
