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.

Three friend called Ben, Bill and Bob were arguing about who did the most exercise, so they agreed to monitor how much cycling, swimming and running each did over a period of 4 weeks.  Unfortunately they neglected to agree on a common data format.

Load and combine data from the 3 files in the above folder to produce this matrix in Power BI Desktop summarising who did how much of each activity:

Collated data

Some hints: you'll need to unpivot some of the data; a good way to extract Ben's activity is to create a column by example; when you've got the 3 friends' data in compatible format, you'll need to create an append query to combine the 3 resulting queries into a single query.

 

Save this report as Easier by hand, then close it down.
