Are you new to Power BI and you want to try it out, but you don't have any data? Or maybe you'd like to see reports that illustrate some of the capabilities of Power BI. We've got you covered.

Power BI offers different kinds of samples for different purposes, including built-in samples and apps in the Power BI service, .pbix files, Excel datasets, and SQL databases. Here's a collection of different samples:

  • The Power BI report (.pbix file). You can view it in the Data Stories Gallery, open and explore it in Power BI Desktop, or upload it to the Power BI service.
  • The Artificial Intelligence sample Power BI report. In the report, you explore the Power BI artificial intelligence features such as key influencers, root-cause analysis in a decomposition tree, and anomaly detection. Download a copy from the Learn page in the Power BI service navigation pane.
  • A sample template app. You download it from AppSource, also right in the Power BI service. Template apps include dashboards, reports, and datasets. You can modify them, then distribute them to your colleagues.
  • Eight original built-in samples in the Power BI service, with dashboards, reports, and datasets. You install them right in the Power BI service. The built-in samples are also available as Power BI reports (.pbix) and Excel workbooks (.xlsx).
  • Excel workbook versions of the built-in samples, containing the data model. You can explore the data model in the Power Pivot add-in for Excel or use the Excel workbook as a data source for a Power BI report.
  • A Financial data sample workbook, a simple flat table in an Excel file available for download. It contains anonymized data with fictitious products, with sales divided by segments and countries/regions. It makes a useful basic data source for a Power BI report.
  • An Excel workbook version of the AdventureWorks dimensional model, in a tutorial to walk you through creating a Power BI report with the data.
  • If you'd rather work with data in SQL databases, the SQL samples article features links to downloadable AdventureWorks and WorldWideImporters SQL databases in a GitHub repository. The article also has links to other Azure samples.

Our online documentation uses these same samples in tutorials and examples, so you can follow along.

The Sales & Returns sample report

Power BI report designers Miguel Myers and Chris Hamill created the Sales & Returns .pbix file to demonstrate many new features in Power BI, including buttons, drillthrough, conditional formatting, what-if, and customized tooltips.

The scenario for this report is a company that sells Microsoft-themed skateboards. They want to see the state of their sales and returns, and analyze how they should modify their operations.

You can explore it these ways:

  • Download the .pbix file and explore it in depth. Look "behind the curtain" to see how Miguel made it. This link opens the GitHub repo for Power BI Desktop samples. Select Download to download the Sales & Returns sample .pbix file to your computer.

Each of these samples is available in several formats: as a built-in sample, as an Excel workbook, and as a Power BI .pbix file. If you don't know what these things are, or how to get your hands on them -- don't worry. This article explains it all. For each of these samples, we've created a tour. Tours are articles that tell the story behind the sample and walk you through different scenarios. One scenario might be answering questions for your manager, another might be looking for competitive insights, or creating reports and dashboards to share, or explaining a business shift.

Before we get started, here are the legal guidelines for using these samples. After that, we introduce the samples and show how to use them.

This sample has two main objectives: understand who the best and worst suppliers are, with respect to quality, and identify which plants do a better job finding and rejecting defects, to minimize downtime.

Install built-in samples

Let's start with the built-in samples. The built-in samples are available in the Power BI service; you don't have to leave Power BI to find them. These samples are each a bundle of one or more dashboards, datasets, and reports that someone creates and that can be used with the Power BI service. These built-in samples are still available, but are being deprecated. They aren't available for Power BI Desktop.

  1. Open the Power BI service (app.powerbi.com) and sign in.

  2. Navigate to your My Workspace, or another workspace where you want to install the sample.

  3. In the bottom-left corner, select Get data.

    Get samples for Power BI - Power BI (11)

  4. On the Get Data page that appears, select Samples.

    Get samples for Power BI - Power BI (12)

  5. Select one of the samples to open a description of that sample, and choose Connect.

Download original sample Power BI files

Each of the built-in samples is also available as Power BI .pbix file. The .pbix files are designed to be used with Power BI Desktop.

  1. Download the files individually using the links below. Selecting these links saves the file automatically to your Downloads folder.

    • Customer Profitability Sample PBIX
    • Human Resources Sample PBIX
    • Procurement Analysis Sample PBIX
    • Retail Analysis Sample PBIX
    • Sales and Marketing Sample PBIX
    • Supplier Quality Analysis Sample PBIX
  2. In Power BI Desktop, select File > Open and navigate to the location where you saved the sample .pbix file.

  3. Select the .pbix file to open it in Power BI Desktop.

Download sample Excel files

Each of the built-in samples is also available as an Excel workbook. The Excel workbooks are designed to be used as a data source in the Power BI service or Power BI Desktop. If you're an advanced Excel user, you can explore or edit the data models in the Power Pivot add-in to Excel.

  1. Download one or all of the sample Excel files from this GitHub repository.

    • Customer Profitability Sample
    • Human Resources Sample
    • IT Spend Analysis Sample
    • Opportunity Tracking Sample
    • Procurement Analysis Sample
    • Retail Analysis Sample

  2. Save the downloaded file. Where you save the file makes a difference.

    Get samples for Power BI - Power BI (15) Local: If you save your file to a local drive on your computer, you can publish the files to Power BI from Excel. After you've published it, there's no remaining relationship between your local file and the file in the Power BI service.
    Get samples for Power BI - Power BI (16) OneDrive - Business: If you have OneDrive for Business and you sign into it with the same account you sign into Power BI with, OneDrive for Business is by far the best place to keep your work in your Excel file in sync with your dataset, reports, and dashboards in Power BI. Because both Power BI and OneDrive are in the cloud, Power BI connects to your file on OneDrive about every hour. If Power BI detects any changes to the files in OneDrive, it automatically updates your datasets, reports, and dashboards in the Power BI service.
    Get samples for Power BI - Power BI (17) SharePoint Team-Sites: Saving your Power BI files to SharePoint – Team Sites is much the same as saving to OneDrive for Business. The biggest difference is how you connect to the file from Power BI. You can specify a URL or connect to the root folder.

  3. You can use the files as data sources in Power BI Desktop, or Publish to Power BI from Excel to the Power BI service. When you publish, you choose one of these options:

    • Upload your workbook to Power BI: Brings the whole Excel file into Power BI, or
    • Export workbook data to Power BI: Creates a blank Power BI report with all your Excel data in the Fields list.

(Optional) Want to understand how the data in these Excel workbooks gets converted to Power BI datasets and reports? Opening the Excel samples in Excel and exploring the worksheets provides some of the answers.

  • When you first open a sample workbook in Excel, you may see two warnings. The first warning says the workbook is in Protected View. Select Enable Editing. The second warning may say that the workbook has external data connections. Select Enable Content.

  • There's only one Excel sheet, the Info sheet. It provides information about obviEnce, the company that created the sample, and explains how to see the data in Power Pivot.

  • Where's the actual data? It's in the Power Pivot data model. On the PowerPivot tab, select Manage. In Power Pivot, you can see the data in all the underlying tables, plus all the DAX formulas.

#1 – Reports in Power BI Below is the data we are going to use to create a report in Power BI.. By clicking on the “Data” tab, you can see the uploaded data.. #2 – Create Calculated Columns If you see the table, we don’t have full data like “Sale Value, Gross Profit, and Gross Profit %” etc.… We need to create these columns by using DAX formulas.. Now once again, right click and choose “New Column” to create the “Gross Profit” value.. #3 – Create Reports in Power BI (By Using Fields) Ok, by using these fields, we will create reports.. From this list, click on “Table” visual to insert the blank table visually.. Drag and drop the “Sale Value” column to “Fields,” and we will have a simple card that shows the overall sales value.

A Power BI Developer would say that a Power BI template is a Power BI file which contains all meta-data for a report but doesn’t contain the data itself.. On the other hand, a Power BI business user would say that a Power BI template is an example of a Power BI application.. To create a Power BI template file in Power BI Desktop, please, go to “File” –> “Save As”:. In my case, I kept the file name “AdventureWorks” as I knew that the new file would have a different file extension, so the full file name which consisted from the visible name and the file extension would finally be different.. If you navigate to the location where you have just saved the template file and choose the file type “Power BI template files” in the bottom-right corner:. Data is the key distinction between a standard Power BI file and a Power BI Template file: in a Power BI file, the imported data goes as a part of the data model, whereas in a Power BI template file you have only the report definitions and the data model description rather than the data itself.. One more reason for saving files in a Power BI Template format is their size – having only metadata associated with the file, the “pbit” file has a smaller size than the “pbix” file:. Then, you may notice that the standard Power BI file contains a file “DataModel” which is 10 times bigger than the file “DataModelSchema”, a part of the template file.. While, officially, a Power BI template is only a Power BI report without data, some users would say that Power BI colour themes and example reports are also examples of templates in Power BI.

The last page in the dashboard displays a geographical map of how many mentions you got in different places, as well as a bar chart showing the top cities and states and how many mentions you got in each.. This dashboard allows you to track interest in products, how fast products are getting sold out, which products will soon be out of stock, and more.. You’ll see a sales trend graph, as well total sales, total profit, and profit ratio for different categories.. At the top, you can see a graph showing attendance over time, as well as total absences vs target absences, both in terms of total absences and absence rate.. At the top, you can also see your total gross profit, gross profit percentage, total cost of goods sold (COGS), net profit, and net profit percentage.

Power BI DAX Data visualization. To add it to the report we'll switch to the data view on the right.Just click New table on the top to create a new table.. Power BI DAX and data visualization.. Now you have the basic model in Power BI to start building your comparisons and you can add this revenue from the previous year into the visual .. The visual has changed completely because now our visual understands that you are working with two values .. Right now the previous year measure still refers to the old measure, so make sure that it will be calculated from the new one and it'll work for both, monthly and for year-to-date.. Moreover, when you want to use those measures in your report, you need to create another visual, so you need one visual for the revenue, the second one for the profit, and so on.
