Introduction to DAX Formula Language

Calculated fields, also known as measures in Excel 2010 version of Power Pivot and in Analysis Services Tabular models, are calculations used in data analysis. Examples commonly found in business reports include sums, averages, minimum or maximum values, counts, or more advanced calculations that you create using a Data Analysis Expressions (DAX) formula.

Download the Excel workbook used in the video tutorial and try the lesson yourself.


With calculated columns, you can add new data to a table in your Power Pivot Data Model. But instead of pasting or importing values into the column, you create a Data Analysis Expressions (DAX)formula that defines the column values.

Download the Excel workbook used in the video tutorial and try the lesson yourself.


The Data Analysis Expressions (DAX) language is a new PowerPivot formula language that allows users to define custom calculations in PowerPivot tables (calculated columns) and in Excel PivotTables (measures). DAX includes some of the functions that are used in Excel formulas, and additional functions that are designed to work with relational data and perform dynamic aggregation.
