  • Slide 15
  • 15 Data Analysis Expressions (DAX) No notion of addressing individual cells or ranges DAX functions refer to columns in the data Sample DAX expressionMeans: = [First Name] & & [Last Name] String concatenation just like Excel =SUM(Sales[Amount]) SUM function takes a column name instead of a range of cells =RELATED (Product[Cost]) new RELATED function follows relationship between tables
  • Slide 16
  • 16 DAX Aggregation Functions DAX implements aggregation functions from Excel including SUM, AVERAGE, MIN, MAX, COUNT, but instead of taking multiple arguments (a list of ranges,) they take a reference to a column DAX also adds some new aggregation functions which aggregate any expression over the rows of a table SUMX (Table, Expression) AVERAGEX (Table, Expression) COUNTAX (Table, Expression) MINX (Table, Expression) MAXX (Table, Expression)
