Change the Column or Measure Value in a Power BI Visual by Selection of the Slicer: Parameter Table Pattern

The trick I am about to explain in this article is used in many samples, and it is not a new trick. However, it is very useful, and many Power BI users are still not aware of it. Let’s say you have to columns: Cost, and Sales, and in one chart, you want to show Read more about Change the Column or Measure Value in a Power BI Visual by Selection of the Slicer: Parameter Table Pattern[…]

Subscription Pattern in Power BI – DAX Measure for Active Subscribers or Open Tickets For All Dates

One of the common patterns of a data model is the subscription pattern. In this pattern, we have subscriptions (or tickets, or issues, or whatever else you want to call it) open date and close date. The way that this data is stored in a table makes it a bit challenging to get informative insight Read more about Subscription Pattern in Power BI – DAX Measure for Active Subscribers or Open Tickets For All Dates[…]

Dynamic Banding or Grouping in Power BI – Using DAX Measures – Choose the Size of Bins

In the previous article/video, I explained how to create dynamic bins by choosing the count of bins in a slicer in the Power BI report. In this article, I’ll explain, how you can do it the other way around, which is by selecting the size of the bin, you will have bins and buckets dynamically Read more about Dynamic Banding or Grouping in Power BI – Using DAX Measures – Choose the Size of Bins[…]

Dynamic Banding or Grouping in Power BI – Using DAX Measures – Choose the Count of Bins

Banding (or binning or grouping) is a scenario that can be implemented both statically and dynamically in Power BI. Dynamic banding means selecting the bin (or band) configuration, and the banding changes based on the user selection of the slicer. Imagine that we have a count of customers by their age groups, but then we Read more about Dynamic Banding or Grouping in Power BI – Using DAX Measures – Choose the Count of Bins[…]

Age Banding in Power BI Using TREATAS DAX Function – Relationship Based on Between

One of the most common types of banding or binning is banding based on a range. Let’s say, for example,  you want to have a group of customers based on their age group. The age group banding can be created in Power Query at the data transformation stage. It can be created using the Grouping Read more about Age Banding in Power BI Using TREATAS DAX Function – Relationship Based on Between[…]

Calculating Stock on Hand Using DAX: Power BI Inventory Model

You don’t have always the luxury of having a snapshot fact table that has the stock on hand value for every single day, at every single workshop, and for every single product. Even if you want to build such a table, it can get easily gigantic. In this blog post, I am going to show Read more about Calculating Stock on Hand Using DAX: Power BI Inventory Model[…]

Budget vs. Actual Model in Power BI: Calculations and DAX

In the previous article, I explained how you can build a data model for budget vs. actual, where the grain of the two fact tables is different. The model works perfectly as a star schema. As long as you slice and dice data in the level of granularity that both tables support, then you don’t Read more about Budget vs. Actual Model in Power BI: Calculations and DAX[…]

Budget vs Actual: Zero Complexity Model in Power BI

When I explain the Star Schema and best practices of data modeling in Power BI, Often I get questions such as what if we want to have budget and actuals in the same data model? what if there are two tables with different granularity? We cannot solve it with simple data modeling and relationships, this Read more about Budget vs Actual: Zero Complexity Model in Power BI[…]
