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.

The aim of this exercise is to use the Excel file in the above folder to create a single chart which can represent multiple different columns on the X axis. Here are some examples you could do - don't do them all!

Power BI Bookmarks Drilldown

Sadly this doesn't work for the Y axis; a separate chart would be required for that.

See below for some hints on how you can create bookmarks to get this working.

The trick is to change the drill-down applied and have all the columns under the Category in the field well. Then create a series of bookmarks, one for each level:

Drilling down

Use the double arrow shown to switch between the Category columns, ignoring the other levels completely.

Make sure to have Data ticked when you create the bookmark to save the drill-down.

Optionally save this as Dynamic chart bookmarks, then close it down.
