You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our blogs. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.

New DAX Quarter Function

Quarter function

This function allows you to show a number 1, 2, 3 or 4 against any date.

If you're using a calendar table - as you should be - I can't imagine when you would ever need date functions like this, and I've only included it here for the sake of completeness!
