Calculations (SSAS Tabular)

SQL Server 2012

After you have imported data into your model, you can add calculations to secure data, and extend, combine, and summarize information. Tabular models provide Data Analysis Expressions (DAX), a formula language for creating custom calculations. In tabular models, the calculations that you can create by using DAX formulas are used in Calculated Columns, Measures, and Row Filters.

Description

Understanding DAX in Tabular Models (SSAS Tabular)

Describes the Data Analysis Expressions (DAX) formula language used to create calculations for calculated columns, measures, and row filters in tabular models.

Formula Compatibility in DirectQuery Mode

Describes the differences, lists the functions that are not supported in DirectQuery mode, and lists the functions that are supported but could return different results.

Data Analysis Expressions (DAX) Reference

This section provides detailed descriptions of DAX syntax, operators, and functions.

Note Note

Step-by-step tasks for creating calculations are not provided in this section. Because calculations are specified in calculated columns, measures, and row filters (in roles), instructions on where to create DAX formulas are provided in tasks related to those features. For more information, see Create a Calculated Column (SSAS Tabular), Create and Manage Measures (SSAS Tabular), and Create and Manage Roles (SSAS Tabular).

Note Note

While DAX can also be used to query an Analysis Services tabular model, topics in this section focus specifically on using DAX formulas to create calculations.
