Obtaining Microsoft Dynamics GP Employee Head Count (Part 3) in Power BI (Video)

This 15-ish minute video shows how I performed the data modeling and visual creation of the Microsoft Dynamics GP Employee Head count using the General Ledger Unit Accounts in Microsoft Power BI.

Last week a Microsoft Dynamics GP user asked a question in the user group form www.GPUG.com about obtaining the employee Head Count in Power BI.  I offered a suggestion and another user offered a different suggestion.  I thought about it over the weekend and realized this would be a great opportunity to review the importance of knowing your data, or being a Data Consultant.
