Data needs to be organized to optimize Tableau's functionality.
- [Instructor] So starting in Tableau 10,…we now have the ability to create…cross data to joins.…So for this dashboard, we're going to…import our data from two data sources,…the World Bank and UN,…and then merge them together into a single data file.…Cross database joins our powerful tool in linking your data.…The join adds the data right into a single file,…meaning it's easier to do calculations,…table calcs, filters, action, et cetera.…And so we're going to add the data from…the UN and the World Bank…together into a single file.…
Because one of the first steps we need to take…in building our dashboard is connecting…to and importing our data.…So let's go ahead and bring in our two data sources.…To do this, I'm going to go to Connect,…and then click on Excel file.…And now I'm going to import my Data Extract…on World Development Indicators.…And now you'll see I've got my list of sheets…over here on the left-hand column.…Now we're going to want to use our data revise sheets.…So that's where we've reworked our data.…
