Creating a Star Schema When creating a data model it is important to understand what the model is being used for.

The way you relate the different tables is through the use of keys. Each row in a table needs a column or a combination of columns that uniquely identifies the row. This is called the primary key. The key may be easily identified, such as a sales order number or a customer number that has been assigned by the business when the data was entered. Sometimes you will need to do some analysis of a table to find the primary key, especially if you get the data from an outside source. For example, you may get data that contains potential customers.

Once you have the keys between the tables identified you are ready to create the relationships in the Power Pivot model.
