Learning Objectives

  • Use Power Pivot for data analysis.
  • Create advanced DAX formulas.
  • Utilize a Date / Calendar table to perform complex date analysis.

This webcast is part of the Microsoft PowerBI Series. Please see below for the suggested viewing order.

This webcast focuses on using the Power Pivot features to enhance your data analysis. One of the strengths of Power Pivot is the formula language DAX (Data Analysis eXpressions). We will use the power of DAX to create meaningful calculations that add new dimensions to your data.

We will also review the use of a date or calendar table that allows us to perform date analysis, which was not possible before. This will allow you to use the new time-intelligent functions to perform complex calculations on data, including month-to-date, quarter-to-date, year-to-date, last year-to-date and more. This webcast demonstrates the hottest tips and tricks that will take your data analysis to the next level.

  • Are you still connected to the internet?
  • Is your computer configured to stream media? Test your system
  • Do you have the most up to date flash player installed?
  • Do you have the appropriate bandwidth to view the broadcast?
    • Symptoms of incorrect bandwidth include freezing or stuttering video during playback.
  • Does your IT department allow access to streaming audio/video through your corporate network?

Please check the following:

  • Did you do a system test?
  • Are you still connected to the internet?
  • If you have internal speakers verify that they are not muted.
  • If you have external speakers verify that they are turned on and aren't muted.
  • Do you have the most up to date flash player installed?
  • Do you have the appropriate bandwidth to view the broadcast?
    • Symptoms of incorrect bandwidth include freezing or stuttering video during playback.

Pop-up blockers are software programs that stop windows from opening automatically. These windows often feature advertisements that can be an annoyance while browsing the internet.

While this is normally a desired result, some software utilizes the additional windows to deliver key functionality. Our webcasts utilize pop-ups to automatically open your presentation, attendance checks and slides in a new window. If your pop-up blockers are enabled, it will prevent you from being able to view the event and the attendance checks automatically.

It is very common to have multiple pop-up blockers operating at the same time; some you may not be aware of. You can locate most pop-up blockers in either the system tray (lower right hand corner of your screen but the clock) or as a toolbar (in IE and Firefox click on "View" then "Toolbars" to activate or deactivate toolbars).

Common toolbars such as Google and Yahoo Companion have built in pop-up blockers that you may need to disable. Also, if you are running personal firewall software such as Norton's Internet Security or Zonealarm, they will also block pop-ups.

If you are running personal firewall software and cannot view the event, please contact your internal IT department or the manufacturer of your firewall software for assistance in disabling pop-up blocking.

Also, if you are using a corporate network, please be aware of your IT policies regarding streaming audio and video. It is very common for businesses to block access to certain web sites containing unrelated content or streaming audio and video. Your IT department may need to make an exception in the system allowing you to view the broadcast.


If you opted for the CPE version of the webcast, then: YES. After the webcast is completed and you have selected all of the qualifying attendance checks, you will have the ability to print/download your CPE certificate. There are a number of ways to access your certificate.

  • At the end of the event, while still logged in, you can click the CPE icon at the bottom of the event player, which will launch a pop-up window containing your certificate.
  • If you do not click the CPE icon while in the presentation, you will have subsequent opportunities to download and print it. A post event email will be sent to the email address the event was registered under with a direct link to your certificate, as well as, access to the archive where you can again click the CPE icon.
  • If you have an AICPA/CPA.com store ID, you will also be able to access your certificate from your My Accounts section. If you opted for the NO CPE version of the webcast, then you will not be able to receive a certificate of completion.

NOTE: If you attended the CPE eligible webcast event, but did not click all the required attendance checks, qualifying you for CPE credit, you will NOT be able to use the archive of the event to then qualify for CPE. As a reminder CPE credit cannot be given for watching the archived version of the webcast due to NASBA guidelines.


Yes. All registrants of our webcasts get access to the archive after the event is over. The archive is typically available 24 hours after the event ends and online for 3 months. The same link you receive for accessing the live event can be used for accessing the archive. CPE credit will only be given if you attend the original, live webcast. Credit cannot be given for watching the archive version of any AICPA webcast, due to the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) guidelines issued for CPE.

Group Access

When a multi-seat group purchase is made, participants will all sit in one room and watch the course together.

After the group purchase is made, the purchaser will receive an email which provides them a direct link to the course. They should use this direct link to access the course.

For those participants sitting together as a group, using a single computer, the person who makes the PURCHASE must be the person logged into the event in order for everyone to receive CPE credit. As the attendance checks are presented on the screen the person logged in must answer them. If all the required checks have been met at the end of the event, the person logged in will click the CPE icon and a form will be provided, so that they can enter each participant who was sitting in the room with them. Once the form is fill out with all the users names/email addresses, then all certificates will be generated for saving/printing.

So what does this mean for my CPE certificate?

If you attended in a group, then the person who is logged in is responsible for responding to the attendance checks. After the event is over and the person logged in selects the CPE icon, they will be required to fill in the name, email and STORE ID of each person sitting in the room. This is why those individuals must have previously registered. Without a valid store ID, the attendee will NOT be able to access their CPE certificate from the MY ACCOUNT option after the event.
