Sin duda, una de las caracteristicas mas esperadas y requeridas por multitud de usuarios en Power BI, es la de poder relacionar tablas usando la relacion 'many-to-many'.

Congratulations to @Maja Franješ  and the Zagreb PUG on winning the July challenge of the month. We spent some time with Maja to learn more about this community in Zagreb.   What has been the most exciting thing for your PUG so far?  The most exciting thing has been when we realized that all available seats were reserved by group members a week before our first PUG meeting. We have received emails asking for additional seats.   What makes your group successful? Definitely a great team!  None of this was possible without the help of an excellent team that helps in the preparation of promotional materials, finding lecturers and sponsors, ...

Es cierto que Power BI es una aplicacion bastante versatile a la hora de visualizar y analizar datos, y aunque se menciona en varios blogs y white papers las capacidadesd de analisis predictivo o Machine Learning (al margen de usar el R script ), aqui presento un compendio de las funcionalidades que ya existen para tal fin sin necesidad de usar codigo en R o ningun otro codigo. En cuanto a los metodos o funcionalidades de analisis predictivo, vamos a distinguir entre las capacidades 'propias de Power BI' y las visualizaciones que actualmente estan disponibles en el ‘AppStore’ de Microsoft para Power BI. No es la intencion de este blog de describir o explicar ...

Someone asked how he could get a calculated column with the value for a certain column in the previous row. In Excel, this is a simple task. However in M, things become a bit more tricky. Suppose you are taking measurements, and for some reason you want the previous measurement to be stored with your data. There are optimization concerns that may make this a useful thing to do, as Power Query only performs its actions on refresh, and not once the data loaded. Alternatively, DAX does it’s work every time you select a slider, click a visualization, or basically change anything on the report. This is one of the times when a good SQL background helps your M ...

Someone had written a measure that gave a certain range of outputs, such as “A”, “B”, or “C”. They had a process that gave a grade to each order depending on how well it performed in certain ways — how fast it was shipped, how many times the customer called in, how much profit was made, etc. They then wanted to know how many As, Bs, and Cs were given. In short, they wanted to be able to count the measure results. When you want to measure other measures, you need the iterative functions (a.k.a the “X” functions). In this case they wanted  COUNTX() . I threw together an example PBIX with some random data. I have 4 data measurements each day ( M1  –  M4 ...

Someone asked how he could find the start of the current month in a different year. He had a report that contained a parameter that selected a year, say 2007. He wanted to find the beginning of the current month, say May, in that year. So what he wanted was the string "May 1, 2007" when the current date was May 26, 2018. And if the current date were October 5, 2023, he would want the string to read "October 1, 2007". Whenever you talk about dates in Power BI, you have to know how dates are stored. In this case, the date table was created with the DAX function Dates = CALENDAR(DATE(2001,1,1), TODAY()) That gives you a table named Dates with a column named ...
