This article describes how to create a virtual relationship in DAX using the TREATAS function, which is more efficient than approaches based on INTERSECT or FILTER.
This article explains how to use SUMMARIZECOLUMNS, which is a replacement of SUMMARIZE and does not require the use of ADDCOLUMNS to obtain good performance.
If you do not have a full month with data, comparisons such as year-over-year (YOY) might require particular filters in order to do a like for like comparison in DAX. This article describes how to write DAX expressions comparing equivalent periods, keeping corresponding number of days in the comparison.
This article describes how to implement incremental updates to an Analysis Services database in Tabular mode with compatibility version 1200 or higher.
The RANKX function in Power BI might have an unexpected behavior when applied to a column that has a specific sort order in the data model. This article explains why, and how to address this issue.
This article describes how to implement non-visual-totals with security roles in Power BI and Analysis Services Tabular, which by default show only visual totals of measures in the model.
This article describes how to improve the productivity when you editing DAX measures in a SSAS Tabular model by using the DAX Editor for Visual Studio.
This article analyzes how to efficiently work with events that lasts over time, such as the duration of an order considering the distance between order date and ship date.
This article describes how DAX Studio can analyze the SQL queries sent to a relational database by Power BI or Analysis Services Tabular in DirectQuery mode.
This article explains how to create a calculated column in DAX to get a sequential number identifying the events related to a particular entity.
This article describes the semantic difference between ALLEXCEPT and the joint use of ALL and VALUES, showing practical examples of the different results in Power BI and SSAS 2016.
This article describes how to add a measure to a Tabular model already deployed on Analysis Services by using C# or PowerShell. This can be useful to deploy user-defined metrics without deploying the entire database.
This article describes a few query limits existing in DirectQuery for both Power BI and Analysis Services Tabular 2016, explaining when you can modify them.
This article shows how variables in DAX can impact the coding style, simplifying a step-by-step approach and improving the readability of your code.
Translations are a new feature in Analysis Services Tabular 2016. This article explains how to use this feature and introduce SSAS Tabular Translator, a free tool to edit translations files.
