Creating Data Parameters with Suggested Values in Microsoft Power BI

I have shown you already how to create parameters with SQL Server data in Microsoft Power BI. This time, I am going to show how to use a suggested list, so rather than manually entering data, I can select my parameter from a dropdown list. By the way, if you are a US College (American) football fan, you will be excited about the report that is being built!

Using Microsoft Power BI Q&A to ask about a specific field in a column

Yesterday I had the pleasure of hanging out with the Microsoft Modern Excel and Power BI user Group. We were talking about Q&A and discovered, together, a method of asking about data based on the value of a specific column. While using the Q&A feature of Microsoft Power BI, I have done things like “Show me the revenue where the state is MN” but I had asked in this method. We were looking at revenue by Customer Age when someone wanted to know if I could call on a range of ages. The answer is yes, and here are the results. Also, check this group out, they are super cool!

Setting Geographic Data Categories in Microsoft Power BI Q&A

Ever use a map visual in Microsoft Power BI, but the locations are not correct?  In this Tiny Tip I will show you how to categorize geographic fields.  For example, we will take the city field and define it as a City.  If you were trying to display information for the city of New York, Texas, you would not want it to display as the state of New York.
