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 a card, a table of films and a chart:

Card showing count

Initially you're seeing all 1,000 films in the underlying data source.


Apply a filter to the whole page so that you only see films which have won at least 2 Oscars (you can drag the Oscars field onto the Page level filters area of the field well):

The filtered data

You should see that there are only 128 films which have won 2 or more Oscars (and the table and chart should update to show just these films).


Add a slicer allowing you to see only the films for a genre of your choice:

Genre slicer

Choose to search using your slicer, and type in dr which should be sufficient to allow you to choose the Drama genre.


If you've done this correctly, you should see 24 as the number displayed in the card, and one of the world's dullest charts at the bottom of the page!

Save this report as Sliced films, then close it down.
