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.
Create a new Power BI file, and run the SQL script in the above folder to generate the Make-a-Mammal database (there's obviously no need to do this if you already have it on your computer).
Now load the following tables:
Choose the tables shown to load into your model.
Hide columns and tables so that you see a tidier list of fields:
This is what Microsoft call the "field well".
Create a matrix showing the average quantity sold by year/quarter and region:
Note that the averages are formatted to two decimal places.
Save this Power BI file with the name That was easy, then exit this instance of Power BI Desktop.
Hi wise owl
How do i run the sql script?
Hi, you can run the script in SQL Server Management Studio. We have a video which explains how to install SQL Server and Management Studio and how to execute a script to install a sample database which you can see here.
I hope that helps!
