You’ll also practice using Power Query Editor to prep your data for analysis.
It’s time to power-up your business intelligence skills! Through hands-on exercises, you’ll learn how to change and format a wide range of visualizations, before moving on to sorting data and creating hierarchies—making it possible for you to drill into your reports. Lastly, you’ll discover how to filter the information in your reports by location and control how these filters interconnect and interact with other visuals in your report
In this chapter, you’ll learn how to create customized calculations using Microsoft’s formula language, DAX (Data Analysis Expressions). Very similar to how formulas are written in Excel, you’ll learn how to create calculated columns and tables—and when you should use them. You’ll then progress to writing powerful calculated measures, leveraging Power BI’s Quick Measures, to create complex DAX calculations like year over year change.
