Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Reducing data with the Query Editor, part of Learning Microsoft Power BI Desktop (2016).
- [Voiceover] If you were working along with me…earlier in this course, then you may have saved…your retrieval of web data as Major Indices.pbix…and put it in the Chapter 03 folder.…So if you have this file, you can open it.…But this file would only be in the Exercise Files folder…if you had created and saved it.…Power BI Desktop files, these PBIX files,…have queries in them that include an absolute path…and therefore the only way you'll have this file locally…is if you created it locally.…
If not, just follow along.…But any time you have a PBIX file…and you open it, Power BI Desktop…or Power BI Desktop Pro…will automatically be opened for you,…because that's the application that's assigned…to the PBIX file extension.…This means that I can start to work with Power BI Desktop,…perhaps simply connect to my data, do nothing more,…and save it so I can return and work on it when I wish.…
Here's my dataset.…This is the information that came out of…the Microsoft Money Central site,…and you all remember that it has some nice column headings,…
