- Exercise Files
If you are a premium member of the Lynda.com training library you have access to all the exercise files used in this course. They're in one folder named Exercise Files. I've placed a copy of it here on my desktop, you can do that as well if you wish. The exercise files folder includes a folder for each chapter. Starting with Chapter 2. Followed by a reference tables folder. When we're working in a particular movie, you'll double-click to open the folder for that chapter.
For example, Chapter 3. And then you'll double-click to open a specific file. And you'll know which file to open because a banner will appear on the screen telling you what file I'm opening. Some files are used or useful in more than one chapter. For example, the reference tables include files that we will use more than once. And, even files that you might choose to use outside of this course. For some of the data sources that we use you will need internet access but I am assuming you are okay with that.
And if you don't have access to this exercise files, don't worry you can use your own data tables to work with the futures being demonstrated for power bi. In addition many of the data saucers that will use, like the zip codes data base, for example are publicly available on the internet and I'll tell you where you can locate them. Now that we know about the files that we'll be using, let's get started.
