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 the data from the workbook in the above folder.  Create a slicer and table to show the searches for a year chosen by your user:

Choosing a year

You don't have to format your slicer/table like this!

Apply dynamic formatting to the title of your table so that it shows the year you've chosen:

Year in title

Note that this won't work unless you convert the data type of the year column from Whole Integer to Text.


Change your slicer so that you can choose more than one year at a time.  Add a quick measure to show the concatenated list of all of the years chosen:

List of years

The title of the table now shows all of the currently selected years.

Save this report as Googly stuff, then close it down.
