Using Relative Date Filtering in Microsoft Power BI

In this video, I demonstrate using Relative Date Filtering in Microsoft Power BI. My dataset contains unpaid Accounts Payable invoices and their due dates. I use the Filter options to restrict the visual to display only invoices that are in the next 275 weeks. My sample data is way out in the future, realistically, you would want to see what’s due this week, month, etc.

Check out this blog post from my www.BIBelinda.com blog.

Compare 2 Microsoft Excel Files using Inquire (Video)

Have you ever needed to compare data in 2 Microsoft Excel Spreadsheets? 

In this video, I show how I compare the addresses on the Microsoft Dynamics GP Vendor card with the addresses in the Vendor Address card.  One of my followers asked me about this comparison due to concerns that the data imported in each table might not match.  I’ll use the Excel Add-on, Inquire, to compare data from each of these tables.

The Spreadsheet Inquire window can compare any Excel files, and do so much more!
