Power BI does the heavy lifting when it comes to analyzing data. One way it does this is through the DAX formula language. By learning how to use this language, you can vastly improve the insights you get from data. Use this course to learn how to conduct several data analysis operations using the DAX formula language. Begin by performing aggregation operations, such as sum and average. Learn how to generate and work with blank data in DAX. Explore a variety of counting functions, ranging from simple counts of values to conditional counts based on filters. Lastly, practice using the IF and SWITCH functions. Upon course completion, you'll know how to use DAX to calculate values and reference table data in Power BI. You'll also be further prepared for the PL-300: Analyzing Data with Microsoft Power BI certification exam.
