DAX Patterns in PowerPivot



DAX (Data Analysis Expressions) is the language for the definition of calculation expressions in PowerPivot for Microsoft Excel. It has syntax similar to Excel, but it also offers a set of functions that are specific to PowerPivot features. This session shows the capabilities of DAX through a wide set of calculation patterns, which are immediately usable — from simple contribution percentages through to more advanced calculations, like ABC classification (Pareto), time-driven comparison and aggregations, distinct count measures, many-to-many relationships, and much more.
