This exercise is provided to allow potential course delegates to choose the correct Wise Owl Microsoft training course, and may not be reproduced in whole or in part in any format without the prior written consent of Wise Owl.
You can learn how to do this exercise on the relevant Wise Owl classroom training course (sadly for the moment only in the UK).
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.
To start, if you haven't already done so run the script in the above folder to generate the MAM database (not for commercial use or copying).
Connect to the MAM database, and import the following 3 fields from the tblTransaction table (rename it as Transaction):
The 3 columns you should import initially.
Note that this isn't the quickest way to go about this, but you will learn about recovering from mistakes better!
Using the ideas shown below, create a data model such that your PowerPivot field list looks like this:
The minimalist data model for our pivot table.
To create your data model, it will help to know that the following related tables exist in the database:
The four tables you'll need for this pivot table.
Now create a pivot table showing the highest quantity of sales for each species:
Your pivot table should look something like this.
Save this workbook as Is that it, and close it down.
