What should you do in Power BI Desktop?

Last Updated on October 23, 2021 by Admin

You need to design the data model to meet the report requirements.

What should you do in Power BI Desktop?

  • From Power Query, use a DAX expression to add columns to the Orders table to calculate the calendar quarter of the OrderDate column, the calendar month of the OrderDate column, the calendar quarter of the ShippedDate column, and the calendar month of the ShippedDate column.
  • From Power Query, add columns to the Orders table to calculate the calendar quarter and the calendar month of the OrderDate column.
  • From Power BI Desktop, use the Auto date/time option when creating the reports.
  • From Power Query, add a date table. Create an active relationship to the OrderDate column in the Orders table and an inactive relationship to the ShippedDate column in the Orders table.
Explanation:

Use Power Query to calculate calendar quarter and calendar month.

Scenario:
A single dataset must support all three reports:
– The Top Customers report will show the top 20 customers based on the highest sales amounts in a selected order month or quarter, product category, and sales region.
– The Top Products report will show the top 20 products based on the highest sales amounts sold in a selected order month or quarter, sales region, and product category.
The data model must minimize the size of the dataset as much as possible, while meeting the report requirements and the technical requirements.
