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.

This app will use a template gallery to list out Abba songs held in an Excel workbook.  Start by adding a table called Songs in Excel to the workbook in the above folder, and then copying it to OneDrive or DropBox:

Table of songs

Turn the list of Abba songs into a table, and call this Songs.


Create a Power Apps canvas phone layout app, and save this as Mamma Mia.  

Add a data source to your app for this table:

Adding a data source

Create a data source linking to this table.


Add a gallery to your app:

Adding a gallery

Use the Vertical template, then link this gallery to your table of songs.


Change the display of the gallery so that you see the title for each song and album it was on:

Song title and album

You'll need to edit the default fields of the gallery to do this.


Add another screen, and get this to show the name of the song you've clicked on in the gallery:

Selected song

What other song could you possibly choose as your favourite Abba number?


Run your app to test it, and check that when you click on a song its details appear on the second screen, then save and close your app.

You can unzip this file to see the answers to this exercise, although please remember this is for your personal use only.
