Breaking down the way DAX works The DAX engine is a complex beast. How it stores the data, then works through it to calculate answers is quite spectacular. Let’s step back for a moment though and try to distill it down into some simple steps, that we can memorise and intuitively start iterating over when
Effort here will pay dividends later Placing effort into formatting your DAX code will make a huge difference as you build out your data models in Power BI. DAX, at times is a confusing language as it is, so as soon as you get into the slightly complex territory unformatted DAX code becomes almost impossible to
Create high quality Power BI solutions Power BI is a great suite of tools that enables business users, or anyone for that matter, to create advanced analysis on nearly any type or structure of data. But what does it really take to build high quality, what I like to call, scalable solutions with Power BI?
One of the key concepts in DAX Context transition is one of the tougher concepts to know and understand well in the DAX language. Why do you even need to know it? Well, if you want to create calculations within calculated columns that reference columns from another table or if you want to run a
