I was about to post the same thing! I can't locate the Excel file 'Employee Data'. It does not look like it is just for a preview, because the instructions say "you need to find; you need to open; you need to [work with this data]"

It is not also located in the virtual machine's LAB.

I attached a quick screenshot for others to better understand.halp.png


EDIT: My bad! All the data from that lesson is indeed just for previewing. There is no need for this [excel Employee Data] file in the further lessons.

@HibaTalat ,

 

To my knowledge this information is only used has a guide, there are no files for this "company", believe they are using the company has an example and you should use your own connection, if you go further down the course you will see that they refer to the company in an SQL connection but hide the connection path so you must use your own data.

 

Further more when you get further ahead you will get to and enviroment lab that will allow to test all the situations with a mockup database.

RE: To my knowledge this information is only used has a guide, there are no files for this "company"... 

I believe this is indeed correct. I went through and completed all DA-100, AZ-204, DP-900, etc learning paths...  "Tailwind Traders" was often referenced as a main source model guide. There may be some existing Azure projects allowing us to create a similar data source... but chances are you may waste a great deal of time googling for .bak  file nor .sql scripts versions, I'm afraid you won't find any.

My best suggestion is either creating your own "Tailwind Traders" mock tables all from scratch...
from given schema examples...or taking a simpler approach by simply using AdventureWorksDW2020 database, which I did. Column names may differ, but you'll get a close idea.
Finally all DA-100 Lab files (including some pbix and AdventureWorksDW2020.bak) are available on Github.

Hope this helps

Yes. I have been doing exactly this as a work around for the course 👍
