Last time I was in Seattle, I was lucky enough to do a short video with the famous GuyInACube showing a useful technique I use when debugging DAX in Power BI. I hope you find it useful.
As an extension to my recent article on base conversions in DAX, I thought I’d show how these conversion calculations can be used to help you perform bitwise calculations in DAX. At present, there are no bitwise operators in DAX (I’m working on it!!), so calculations that need to perform AND, OR, XOR, NOT etc. … Continue reading DAX: Bitwise calculations
I was doing some work recently which required DAX calculations to convert values from a specific base to another, e.g. to convert a value in hexadecimal format to a base 10 representation (or decimal), or from base 10 to binary. Excel, like other languages has native functions to allow you to convert across base, such … Continue reading DAX: Base conversions
Introduction: Around 2014, an enhancement was made to the DAX engine designed to help improve query speed. The enhancement, called DAX Fusion, looks to reduce the number of storage engine scans needed to satisfy queries, by combining similar scans where possible. This optimisation feature exists in Power BI, so can be used to help speed … Continue reading DAX Fusion
