If you are just getting started with Power BI you may be seeing a lot of references to a 'Calendar' Table or 'Date Table.  Maybe you already have a handle on this aspect of PBI, but a lot of people seem not to understand how to get started.  If you forego having a 'Calendar' Table altogether, you can end up having a very cumbersome file and you won't be able to take advantage of many of the awesome date/time functions offered through Power BI.  There are quite a few good resources already out there.  This post points you to a few of those and helps you get started in both M and DAX. To turn off Time intelligence - here is a great blog resource:  ...

What's your type? For a beginner in Power BI and in business intelligence in general, it is not easy to understand data types and differentiate them from data format. And then comes data category... So, what's all that about, really? It's true that in spreadsheet applications like Excel, data type is not really of a bother to the user, as there is no functionality to define the type of the data present in cells. We just enter values and it's all fine (somehow). In fact, I only started to bother about data types when starting to use Power Query, Power BI and Power Pivot (data modelling tool in Excel). Power Query is less friendly with typeless ...

Hi Friend,  When New York was first picked as a stop on the Power Platform World Tour ,  the topic of how the Microsoft Power Platform was being used to influence change in the NY Taxicab system seemed fitting.

Hi everyone. This is my first post (in Elnglish), and I hope you can help me. I have a table of dates with all the necessary fields ([Year], [Month], [MonthName], etc) I have another table 'Results' with records of various types (Sales, Returns, Discounts, etc; all these in a single field [Description]) and the value of each record per month [Amount]. I must say that this table is of monthly closing results, so two things happen: (1) to July I will have records until June of that year and (2) for each description there is only one record per month. Both tables are related by the [Dates] field. I want to do a sales analysis comparing one year ...

Hola a todos. Este es mi primer post, espero que puedan ayudarme. Tengo una tabla de fechas con todos los campos necesarios ([Año], [Mes], [NombreMes], etc) Tengo otra tabla 'Resultados' con registros de varios tipos (Ventas, Devoluciones, Descuentos, etc; todos estos en un solo campo [Descripción]) y el valor de cada registro por mes [Monto]. He de decir que esta tabla es de resultados de cierre mensual, así que ocurren dos cosas: (1) a julio tendré registros hasta junio de ese año y (2) por cada descripción hay un sólo registro por mes.  Ambas tablas están relacionadas por el campo [Fechas]. Quiero hacer un análisis de ventas comparando ...
