Topics in this section are not required to complete the tutorial. This tutorial includes the following supplemental lessons: By default. Click OK. After your project is created. To learn more about the different types of tabular model projects. In Name. Solution Name will be the same as the project name.
Notice in the Properties window. To learn more about the tabular model authoring environment. These are the advanced project properties.
In Solution Explorer. An empty model will appear in the model designer and the Model. You can view the basic project properties in the Properties window. To complete this lesson. This is the project file name. Estimated time to complete this lesson: You will later set some of these properties when you are ready to deploy your model. When you add data. For more information. In the New Project dialog box. Add Data In this lesson. You can also use the AutoSum feature to create a standard aggregation measure for a selected column.
Data Backup. Next Steps To continue this tutorial. Add Data. Click on the Column menu. From here. Click on the Table menu. The steps for importing data from each of these relational sources are very similar to what is described below. While some items will not yet be active. Other toolbar buttons provide quick access to frequently used features and commands. In the Properties window. You can change these settings later if necessary.
Click on the Model menu.
Workspace Retention. By using the Table Import Wizard. Explore some of the dialogs and locations for various features specific to authoring tabular models. For this tutorial. When you create a new model. In the Impersonation Information page. You want to select from a list of tables and views.
Tabular Models. To learn more about importing data and the different types of data sources you can import from. In the Choose How to Import the Data page. Before performing the tasks in this lesson. In Server name.
In the Table Import Wizard. In the Select Tables and Views page. In the Database name field. This launches the Table Import Wizard which guides you through setting up a connection to a data source. Verify Specific Windows user name and password is selected.
If Import from Data Source is greyed out. DimCustomer DimDate. Clear the checkbox at the top of the following columns: Customer Now that you have connected to the database. When possible. Select the row for the Customer table. Filter the Table Data prior to Importing. We want to give the tables in the model more easily understood names.
The Preview Selected Table window opens with all the columns in the DimCustomer source table displayed. Click on the cell in the Friendly Name column for DimCustomer. To filter the table data prior to importing 1. Rename the other tables: Notice the words Applied filters are now displayed in the Filter Details column in the Customer row.
Eliminating unnecessary columns will make your model smaller. Filter the remaining tables by clearing the checkboxes for the following columns in each table: Verify that all other columns are checked. Tip To see the relationships that were automatically created between the imported tables. Rename Columns In this lesson. Next Step To continue this tutorial. Each table has been added as a new tab in the model designer. Renaming makes columns more identifiable and easier to navigate in both the model designer as well by users selecting fields in a client application.
Click Close. Rename Columns. If you choose not to rename columns. If everything looks OK. Important Renaming columns is not necessary to complete this tutorial. Save the Model Project It is important to frequently save your model project. To import the selected tables and column data 1. New tables and columns are created in the model using the friendly names you specified. The wizard imports the table data along with any relationships between tables. To learn more. Review your selections.
The wizard closes and the model designer is visible. When all the data has been imported.
While importing the data. Double click the CustomerKey column name. In the model designer. When you click a tab. Rename Columns To rename columns 1. Rename the remaining columns in the Customer table. Define Relationships Adventure Works Tutorial.
Mark as Date Table In Lesson 2: All the use of the name Date can get kind of confusing. In the Mark as Date Table dialog box.
A relationship is a connection between two tables that establishes how the data in those tables should be correlated. Create Relationships. Whenever you use Time Intelligence functions in calculations. Procedures To set Mark as Date Table 1. In this lesson. While in your model this table is now named Date. You then renamed the DimDate table. Click the Table menu. For example. Create Relationships In this lesson. You can then create valid relationships between other tables and the Date table.
Tip In addition to using the model designer in diagram view. Click on the solid line between the Customer table and the Geography table. Use the minimap controls in the upper-right corner of the model designer to adjust the view to include as many of the tables as possible.
The lines between tables indicate the relationships that were automatically created when you imported the data. This shows these are the columns used in the relationship. Moving tables does not affect the relationships already between the tables.
To view all of the columns in a particular table.
You can also click and drag tables to different locations. To review existing relationships 1. Notice the Geography Id column in the Customer table and the Geography Id column in the Geography table now both each appear within a box. The solid line between these two tables show this relationship is active. The model designer now appears in Diagram View. Use the model designer in diagram view.
A solid line appears showing you have created an active relationship between the Order Date column in the Internet Sales table and the Date column in the Date If tables from the same data source connection are imported at separate times.
In some cases. Product Category. The Manage Relationships dialog box shows the relationships that were automatically created when you imported data. To add new relationships between tables 1. Product Subcategory. Note When creating relationships. In the Internet Sales table. The steps are slightly different for each task. A dotted line appears showing you have created an inactive relationship between the Due Date column in the Internet Sales table and the Date column in the Date table.
A dotted line appears showing you have created an inactive relationship between the Ship Date column in the Internet Sales table and the Date column in the Date table. Create Calculated Columns In this lesson. This is to show you there are several ways to create new columns. A calculated column is based on data that already exists in the model.
You will create five new calculated columns in three different tables. Next Step To continue this lesson. You can have multiple relationships between tables. Values are then populated for all the rows in the calculated column. A new column is added to the far right of the table 2.
Tip If you scroll down through the table. In the formula bar. With the Date table still active. Create a Day of Week calculated column in the Date table 1. Right-click the Calendar Quarter column. Rename this column to Month Calendar. AutoComplete helps you type the fully qualified names of columns and tables.
Calculated columns can only be created by using the model designer in Data View. Click on the column heading.
Note If you receive an error. A new column named CalculatedColumn1 is inserted to the left of the Calendar Quarter column. In the formula bar above the table. Rename the column to Day of Week. The Month Calendar calculated column provides a sortable name for Month.
Add a new column. Notice the right-most column is named Add Column italicized. Rename the column to Product Subcategory Name. You will create hierarchies later in Lesson 7.
The Product Category Name calculated column is used to create a hierarchy in the Product table which includes data from the Product Category Name column in the Product Category table. The Margin calculated column is used to analyze profit margins for each product row. Create a Margin calculated column in the Internet Sales table 1. Drag the column between the Sales Amount column and the Tax Amt column.
Moving columns in your table makes it easier to navigate. Rename the column to Product Category Name. Hierarchies cannot span more than one table. The Day of Week calculated column provides a sortable name for the day of week. Create a Product Category Name calculated column in the Product table 1.
Rename the column to Margin. Scroll to the far right of the table. The Product Subcategory Name calculated column is used to create a hierarchy in the Product table which includes data from the Product Subcategory Name column in the Product Subcategory table.
With the Product table still active. Create a Product Subcategory Name calculated column in the Product table 1. Create Measures Adventure Works Tutorial. If an empty measure grid does not already appear beneath the table. Measures created using the AutoSum feature will appear in the measure grid cell directly beneath the column.
To hide or show the measure grid for a table. A value for each cell in the filter is then calculated by the applied measure. Similar to the calculated columns you created in the previous lesson. You can create a measure by clicking on an empty cell in the measure grid.
Create Calculated Columns. The Measure Grid appears below a table in the model designer when in Data View. Measures are powerful.
To create measures. Create Measures In this lesson. You can also create measures using a standard aggregation function by clicking on a column. Measure 1. If the measure grid does not already appear. To create a Days in Current Quarter measure in the Date table 1.
Days in Current Quarter: Table menu.
On the toolbar. With the Date table still active in the model designer.
The measure name also precedes the formula in the formula bar. Tip When typing a formula in the formula bar. Click on the Sales Order Number column heading. In this case. Notice the top-left cell now contains a measure name. When you have finished building the formula.
When creating a comparison ratio between one incomplete period and the previous period. Using this method. In the measure grid. To rename the measure. By clicking on an empty cell in the measure grid. To create additional measures in the Internet Sales table 1. Notice the top cell below the column in the measure grid now contains a measure name. By using the AutoSum feature. Measures created using the AutoSum feature are automatically placed in the top-most cell in the measure grid below the associated column.
The AutoSum feature automatically creates a measure for the selected column using the DistinctCount standard aggregation formula. Distinct Count Sales Order Number. KPIs can provide business professionals a quick and easy way to understand a summary of business success or to identify trends. KPIs are used to gauge performance of a value. Create Key Performance Indicators In this lesson.
In reporting client applications. Internet Current Quarter Sales Performance: Prerequisites This topic is part of a tabular modeling tutorial. The Key Performance Indicator dialog box opens.
In Define Status Thresholds. This icon indicates that this measure serves as a Base value for a KPI. In the Absolute Value field.
This measure will serve as the Base measure for the KPI. In the Key Performance Indicator dialog box. Tip Notice the Descriptions expandable field below the available icon styles. You can type descriptions for the various KPI elements to make them more identifiable in client applications. Create Measures. In the measure grid for the Internet Sales table. In Select Icon Style. The Internet Sales perspective you create in this lesson will exclude the Customer table object.
When a user connects to a model using a perspective. The purpose of this lesson is to describe how to create perspectives and become familiar with the tabular model authoring tools. When you create a perspective that excludes certain objects from view. Inventory and Sales Force. Internet Current Quarter Margin Performance: A perspective defines a viewable subset of a model that provides focused.
Calculated columns and measures either included in a perspective or not can still calculate from object data that is excluded. Create Perspectives In this lesson. Create Perspectives Adventure Works Tutorial. If you later expand this model to include additional tables. Create Perspectives To create an Internet Sales perspective 1.
To rename the perspective. In Fields. Hierarchies are groups of columns arranged in levels. Create Hierarchies In this lesson. Hierarchies can appear separate from other columns in a reporting client application field list.
Verify your selections. Create Hierarchies Adventure Works Tutorial. To create hierarchies. In the Perspectives dialog box. Create Key Performance Indicators. Notice you excluded the Customer table and all of its columns from this perspective.
Creating and managing hierarchies is not supported in the model designer in Data View. Note Renaming a column in a hierarchy does not rename that column in the table. In the Product table. If you reposition objects in Diagram View.
Create Perspectives. Rename these columns Model and Product. A column in a hierarchy is just a representation of the column in the table. A new hierarchy appears at the bottom of the table window. In the hierarchy name. In the Category hierarchy. By using click and drag. Rename Product Subcategory Name to Subcategory. To create hierarchies in the Date table 1. Create Hierarchies To create a Category hierarchy in the Product table 1.
Tip Use the Minimap controls at the top-right of the model designer to change how you can view objects in Diagram View. Column Rename to: Rename the hierarchy to Calendar. Add the following columns. Create Partitions. In the Date table. Because you want the partition to include only those rows within a certain period. In the Partition Manager dialog box. Select the Query Editor button just above the right side of the preview window.
In the SQL Statement field. Each partition can then be processed independently. Tip Before continuing to the next step. The Partition Manager dialog box opens. Create Partitions To create partitions in the Internet Sales table 1. Create Partitions In this lesson. This is because the Table Preview window displays columns from the source table. In Partition Name.
For the Internet Sales table. Create Hierarchies.
