DAX for Power BI videos | DAX for Power BI Part 4.4 - Using Variables
Posted by Andrew Gould on 30 November 2021
This video explains how to use variables in DAX to break a large calculation into discrete parts. You'll learn how to declare and assign values to variables in calculated columns and measures, and how to refer to variables in your code. You'll see how to declare variables within a function to create variables with a limited scope, and how to create variables which can hold the results of a table expression.

Making a video bigger
You can increase the size of your video to make it fill the screen like this:
Play your video (the icons shown won't appear until you do), then click on the full screen icon which appears as shown at its bottom right-hand corner.
When you've finished viewing a video in full screen mode, just press the Esc key to return to normal view.
Improving the quality of a video
To improve the quality of a video, first click on the Settings icon:
Make sure you're playing your video so that the icons shown appear, then click on this gear icon at the bottom right-hand corner.
Choose to change the video quality:
Click on Quality as shown to bring up the submenu.
The higher the number you choose, the better will be your video quality (but the slower the connection speed):
Don't choose the HD option unless you have a fast enough connection speed to support it!
Is your Wise Owl speaking too slowly (or too quickly)? You can also use the Settings menu above to change your playback speed.
