Join Ron Davis for an in-depth discussion in this video Building an environment, part of Excel Data-Mining Fundamentals.
- Okay, now we're going to build out an environment…and talk about the different tools that we need.…Now, as this is an Excel course,…I right now have SQL Server Management Studio open.…Don't let this concern you.…I'm going to go in and I'm going to do a restore…of Analysis Services database and then…I'm going to do a restore of a transactional database.…But, for this course, you really…don't need to do either one of those things;…because when we actually get into Excel,…other than when we're going in…and just bringing in some data…and I show you how to clean it.…
You can just watch the videos,…and I believe you'll get just as much…as if you had installed these databases…and followed along with what I do.…The reason I point this out is that…these installation tasks, if you're not used to them,…can be very frustrating, and also the location…of the files that download that you get…can move with different URLs as Microsoft…moves this stuff around as they move in generations,…they actually become deprecated on out.…
