PowerPivot – Creating Hierarchies in PowerPivot for Excel 2010
In this post, we will see how to create Hierarchies in a Table in PowerPivot for Excel. We will look at the following two scenarios for building Hierarchies:
- Creating Hierarchies using Columns from the Same Table
- Creating Hierarchies using Columns from Different Tables
To start working with the steps in this post, setup your Excel/PowerPivot workbook and add the following items to your workbook:
- Import “DimDate”, “DimEmployee”, “DimReseller”, “DimGeography”, “Sales Territory Query” (“DimSalesTerritory” table imported using a query) and “FactResellerSales” tables from AdventureWorksDW database into PowerPivot (Refer to Importing SQL Server Data from Multiple Data Sources into PowerPivot for Excel)
- Add a New Column “SortedMonth” (Equal to “Month”) and set the column sorting to “MonthNumber” in “DimDate” (Refer to “Applying Custom Sorting on Column Data” in this tip: Working with Columns and Properties in PowerPivot for Excel)
