PowerPivot | Using Excel tables exercise | Link an Excel Workbook to Map Legs to Biological Terms
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).
The MAM database contains a table giving how many legs an animal has, but we want to report this by technical term:
|By legs||By technical term|
To do this, create an Excel workbook, and within this create the following worksheet:
This worksheet gives the technical terms for animals with 4, 2 and 0 legs. The last of these refers to a very old joke.
Use Excel's PowerPivot ribbon to link to this Excel workbook.
Now import the tblAnimal, tblTransaction and tblProduct tables also, and create the necessary relationships linking these tables together:
The relationships you'll need.
Create the pivot table as shown at the start of this exercise!
Save this workbook as Better jokes please, and close it down.
