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.

Open the Power BI file in the above folder, and create a measure (not a calculated column - that would be too easy) to rank each series by its viewing figures to get:

Viewing figures ranked

The ranking more or less matches the series number, but there's a blip where GBBO went over to Channel 4.


This exercise may look deceptively easy, but it's probably the hardest one in the set!

Save this as Rank expression, then close it down.
