Power BI Training
Not all Microsoft Power BI training is made equal, and there are good reasons to work with an industry expert. When Matt first started training Power Pivot and Power Query back in 2014, Power BI wasn’t even a thing. In fact Matt has been training Power BI for longer than Power BI has been a generally available software product. Today, Matt Allington provides Power BI Training in the form of:

Do you know what you need to know?
On the surface, Power BI looks like an easy to learn Microsoft tool, however what most people think they need to learn is often not even half of what they need. My live Power BI training course is conveniently split into 2 distinct learning days so that you can choose the level of learning that is right for you. Day one will teach you what you need to know to build reports and dashboards using data prepared by someone else. For those that want to learn more (e.g. business analysts, Excel power users), come back for day 2 and learn what you actually need to know to be good using this tool by enhancing the underlying data so you can extract the hidden insights.

This article is a follow on from last week. I recommend you go back and read the article first if you missed it, but in summary, I want to write a measure (not a calculated column) that will return the median sales of products while excluding the products with blanks (no
I was going to title this blog “MEDIANX and the X Functions”, but that sounded too much like a 2030s band, so I opted for MEDIANX returns blank in DAX. But the article does indeed cover more than just MEDIANX and the blank “problem”. But first some background. I helped

The July 2020 version of Power BI Desktop released a new feature called the External Tools toolbar. This was announced back in May during the Microsoft Business Applications Summit, and I have been waiting eagerly for it to be released ever since. In this short article today I am going
