19 December 2012 · 1249 views

Data Analysis Expressions LogoWe have just published our newest video tutorial: DAX: The CALCULATE Function. Marco Russo, respected author and mentor from, explains when to use this function and introduces its syntax, before showing you in-depth examples of how to manipulate filters at column granularity level, and how to transform a row context into a filter context, in 5 extensive, high-resolution demos. Learning these concepts will enable you to write advanced, real-world calculations in Data Analysis Expressions, such as percentage of a total, that work properly with other filters, slicers, and so on. This 47-minute tutorial is part of our video series on DAX, and you should study it, ideally, after you have learned about DAX Evaluation Context.
