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 file in the above folder.  It shows the 100 bestselling books since 1998:

Bestselling books

One author appears twice as many times as his or her nearest competitor in the list, as you'll see if you sort the second column into descending order.  See if you can guess who this is before sorting!


Create a tooltip page to show the volume of sales for each title:

Volume of book sales

Your tooltip page doesn't have to look like this, or even be a bar chart.


Assign this page to be the tooltip for the original visual:

Books for author as tooltip

What you might see if you hover over Bill Bryson, for example.

If you still have time, and want a challenge, create and display a quick measure to show the name of the author in your tooltip:

Author name as title

The report page tooltip now shows the name of the author chosen in the title.

Save this report as Bookie tips, then close it down.
