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 report file in the above folder:

Opening report

Choose to open an existing report (so you're opening an existing .pbix file, NOT getting data in a new report).


This file contains a table listing out the top websites in the world as of March 2019:

Top websites table

No huge surprises in the top 3 or 4!

Create a matrix analysing these as follows:

Matrix analysing data

This matrix has a title and coloured totals.

On another page, create a matrix summarising the number of websites by continent and country:

Summary by country

This is easier said than done! You'll need to click on the two icons shown in the hints below to achieve this.


These are the icons you'll need to use:

Drill-down tool Row header expand collapse icons
This is above the matrix This is in the Row headers category

Save this report with the same name, then close it down.
