Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Connecting to a file: CSV, part of Learning Microsoft Power BI Desktop (2016).
- [Voiceover] Another file type that we're interested in…is a CSV file, or comma separated value file.…You'll find one of these in the Chapter 02 Exercise Files.…If you already have a CSV file or a text file,…you can open your own file.…This one is a file of gross domestic products…for different countries.…So, we'll open it up.…Connection gets created.…We have here countries, the region they're in,…the year that the report is from,…and the per person gross domestic product.…
Again, we're only going to see a few rows here at the top,…enough to make sure it's the data that we want.…And we can load that.…And here's our data, row after row after row.…There are actually 4,419 rows, to be exact.…If you wish to use this later, you could save it.…If not, you can simply close it.…That's what I'm going to do.…
