Level Up Series: Advanced DAX

Foundations taught us how to remove repetitive, manual work and make impactful insights. Advanced DAX is about making it rain money by better informing decisions!

Cross-Filtering in Slicers with Cube Formulas

Back from Paradise, Here’s a Quick Tip

Funny thing about vacations is that everyone is waiting on you when you get home.  But man, what a vacation.

Anyway, I’m juggling my final edits to Alchemy, spending two full days with a client, AND teaching a class on Wednesday/Thursday, so today’s post will be brief, but hopefully still useful:

Power Pivot Slicers and Cross Filtering with a Pivot

PivotTable with Two Slicers.  Gender Slicer “Cross Filters” the Customer Name Slicer,
As Expected.  All is Right with the World.

Now we convert the pivot to cube formulas:

A Post From Oceanside!

imageYeah, I’m on vacation (my first real vacation in 5+ years), so why am I writing a post?  Well, it’s before 9 am, the family is still sleeping in, and I honestly loved the idea of slipping out to write a post while looking at the ocean. 

The truth is I LOVE writing these posts – in some sense they represent Peak Fun for me, especially when they can be written at a relaxed pace with no outside pressures.  In the future, maybe I will take vacations for the express purpose of writing.  (That sounds surprisingly good to me actually).
