This exercise is provided to allow potential course delegates to choose the correct Wise Owl Microsoft training course, and may not be reproduced in whole or in part in any format without the prior written consent of Wise Owl.
The answer to the exercise will be included and explained if you attend one of more of the courses listed below!
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.
The above folder contains 3 files: two in CSV format and one in Excel. Create a new Power BI report, and load these 3 files to create the following data model:
You'll have to create one of these relationships yourself. You should also hide the id fields, as no one will be interested in showing them in any report.
Rename the fields in the field well to make it more obvious what they represent:
|The original list ...||... and the revised names|
Create a table listing out the directors:
A table listing the directors - feel free to do your own thing with the formatting.
Now create another table to list out the genres using the same look-and-feel:
Remember that you can use the Format Painter tool to copy the formatting from one visual to another!
Create a third table to list out the films made by the director (or genre) that you've selected:
The list of films you should see when you click on Akira Kurosawa.
You'll need to click on the Edit Interactions button on the Format tab of the menu, and choose the Filter icon.
Save this report as Go Akira, then close it down.
