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.
In a new workbook, use Power Query to load data from the Exchange Rates table in the Tables workbook:
Initially the data looks like this.
Load this into a PowerPivot data model, splitting the currencies:
As a bonus task, filter the data to exclude the (pointless) GBP to GBP exchange rate.
Too easy? Load data from the Share Prices worksheet in the Tables workbook:
The investment symbol needs splitting out, and the price should be numeric.
Split the investment into the name and code, and make the price into a number, to get something like this:
Investments sorted by the Change column, with the highest value first. You should filter the table in Power Query to omit any investments whose prices contain $ or € symbols. You can type in a € by pressing Alt + Ctrl + 4.
Save this workbook as Splitting Shares, then close it down.
