Power BI | Calendars exercise | Compare expense payment dates with dates incurred
This exercise is provided to allow potential course delegates to choose the correct Wise Owl Microsoft training course, and may not be reproduced in whole or in part in any format without the prior written consent of Wise Owl.
The answer to the exercise will be included and explained if you attend the relevant Wise Owl course (sadly, only in the UK for now).
You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. 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.

One relationship should use the date an expense was incurred, the other the date an expense was paid.
Use this model to show that a few expenses were incurred in one year and paid in the next:
You could apply a conditional formatting rule to highlight numbers less than 100, as here.
