Overview of the webinar

This webinar introduces you to the DAX formula and function language that is part of Power Pivot. You will learn how to access DAX, understand its syntax and create calculated columns and Measures (a special type of DAX formula)

We hear a lot about the benefits of storing your list-based data in Excel's Data Model instead of in worksheet cells. Most of those benefits revolve around how much data you can store, how much space you can save, and how much easier it is to create Pivot Tables from multiple data sources.

But dive a little deeper and you'll find a whole magical world of DAX, Measures, and CUBE functions which will help you to take your reporting and data analysis skills to the next level. This really is where the Power of Power Pivot comes in. Think of DAX as Excel formulas on steroids. Without it, you are using a fraction of the capabilities of Power Pivot.
