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 in the above folder.  It contains three tables, giving films, their directors and their genres.

Create a tree map visual based on the table of genres:

Tree map

The trick to getting the rectangles the same size is shown below.

The field well for the tree map should look like this:

Tree map fields

By adding the Genre field to the Group and Values sections you ensure that each tree map rectangle is the same size.

 

Add a column chart showing the length of each film, and get this to be filtered when you click on a genre.  Here's what you should see, for example, when you click on the Sports genre in the tree map visual:

Formatting a chart

To keep you busy, you'll need to set conditional formatting and axis titles, and make sure that the sorting is correct.

Save this report as Treemendous, then close it down.
