DAX's level of Business Logic RRS feed

  • Question

  • -- From what I have seen about DAX's ability, is it used for doing advanced business logic to be enable to do advanced calculation in the same level as a C sharp developer?

    -- Would you see that DAX's code level of business logic would be the same for Excel calculation (not Excel VBA)?

  • Hi Sakura,

    Data Analysis Expressions (DAX) is the formula language used to create custom calculations in Microsoft PowerPivot for Microsoft Excel workbooks and SQL Server 2012 Analysis Services (SSAS) tabular model projects. DAX formulas include functions, operators, and values to perform advanced calculations on relational tables and columns, including lookups to related values and related tables.

    I recommend you take a look at the following article:
