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.

Create a new Power BI file:

You can use this menu option to create a new report (or just start up a new copy of Power BI).

Data menu

Choose this option to load Excel data into your report.

Give the song title and release year columns in the imported table better names, and hide the album column (no one talks about albums any more):

First text goes here The revised version

You should now be able to create this table:

Your data model ... ... and a table based upon it.

Save this report as Mamma mia, and close it down.
