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.

Create a new Power BI report, and load data from both worksheets in the Excel workbook in the above folder:

Model view

Power BI will automatically link the tables by the Language column. Conveniently, the Languages table contains the foreground and background colour you should use for formatting each language.


Create a column chart showing the number of films by language, applying the foreground and background colours from the table of languages:

Column chart

To avoid English swamping your data (as it so often does), filter your chart to remove it. The above chart uses the ForeColour field in the Language table to set the data label text colour, and the BackColour field in the same table to set the column value back colour.

Save this chart as Inappropriate colours, then close it down.
