Simulate the SQL WHERE condition in DAX–#dax #powerpivot #ssas

I recently wrote a short article about filtering data in DAX. In the last month I’ve seen a growing number of people with a SQL background going to Tabular, without having a previous experience of MDX. In my opinion, learning DAX is easier if you try to match its features to SQL rather than to MDX. The reality is that DAX is somewhere in the middle, because join between tables can be implicit in a query (like in MDX), but you can create filters that resembles existing “virtual relationships” (like in SQL with explicit JOIN).

For this reason, I recently restarted writing articles of the series “From SQL to DAX”, and I already published

I am already working on other articles to enhance the series – feedback and suggestions for the future topics are welcome!
