This article explains how the context transition interacts with the filter arguments of a CALCULATE function in DAX. This is important in order to avoid unexpected results with complex calculations made in filter arguments.
This article shows a technique in DAX to compute the sales volume of products that were available right from the beginning of a selected time period, ignoring products introduced afterwards.
This article describes a counterintuitive behavior of BLANK in DAX measures affecting Power BI, Analysis Services, and Power Pivot. That behavior could cause mistakes in a report using alternate expressions of the same calculation. Indeed, these expressions are not equivalent when BLANK is involved.
This article describes how to extract raw data stored in the Tabular engine, used by Analysis Service Tabular, Power BI, and Power Pivot.
The Detail Rows Expression in a Tabular model provides the user with control over the drillthrough results obtained by showing details of a measure. This article describes typical DAX expressions you can use in this property.
This article introduces a technique to filter and productively compare two time periods with Power BI.
This article explains how DAX handles dependencies between tables, columns and relationships, to help you avoid circular dependency errors.
This article explains how to use KEEPFILTERS to intersect instead of overriding an existing filter context in DAX, simplifying the code and improving performance.
This article compares the differences between calculated columns and calculated tables from a processing and storage point of view.
This article describes how to create a table with a series of numbers in DAX by using the new GENERATESERIES function or through a workaround using CALENDAR.
This short article explains how to change the culture settings of a Power BI Desktop file, which by default corresponds to the locale settings of the machine used to create a Power BI Desktop file.
This article explains how to correctly measure the dictionary size of a column in a model created in Power BI, Power Pivot, or Analysis Services Tabular.
This article explains how to improve DAX queries using GENERATE and ROW instead of ADDCOLUMNS when you create table expressions.
This article describes how the SELECTEDVALUE DAX function simplifies the syntax required in many scenarios where you need to read a single value selected in the filter context.
This article shows how to define variables in DAX queries and introduces the differences in scope when there are multiple EVALUATE statements.
