Welcome to the forum!

Hello to tod@s!

My name is Miguel Escobar. A little over 1 year ago I started a forum through my company(Powered Solutions)focused mainly on topics related to Power BI, Power Query and PowerPivot totally in Spanish.

Yes! Just like you read it. A totally free forum for the entire Spanish-speaking community where we helped each other as a community by answering daily inquiries of any kind of complexity level.

All this effort arose because there was no free public community or forum for Power BI-related topics, nor was there much content published in Spanish for these topics compared to what exists in English.

We understood very well the impact of having an active community and content created in Spanish for a tool like Power BI / Power Query / PowerPivot and that's why we take reins on the issue to have a positive impact on Spanish-speaking users looking for such communities and content.

Thus, at the end of 2018 our campaign for the Spanish-speaking community emerged internationally where the forum was one of the main contributions.

Just during all this time the forum was active, I was always in touch with the Microsoft team so they could monitor the impact that the forum we had created. I hope the forum has served you as a sample of what an official Power BI forum could be in Spanish.

An ordinary day comes to me excellent news – the Microsoft team has a new system that can be implemented on the official Power BI forum/community (which was only in English) to be able to make syndicated content or, to put it another way, have a forum/community entirely in Spanish that could then be translated into English and the content in English could be translated into Spanish through this content syndicate system.

For the past few weeks I have been in conversations with the Microsoft team to test this system and just today this new forum/community and system have been released. You're just reading this new post from the new official Microsoft Power BI forum in Spanish 😊

This was always my goal. That the forum/community was under Microsoft's domain and is known as the official one for Power BI and I think this syndication system is the right one.

This post is simply a small personal blog that I wanted to share with everyone to give them a little more context about how we got to where we are right now.

Because of this great new effort by the Microsoft team, and to merge communities that don't compete with each other, I've decided to unsubscribe from the Powered Solutions forum to give way to this new forum in Spanish.

I want to thank all the people who registered and participated in the Spanish-based Powered Solutions forum and I hope to register and become active members of this new site.

Here are some general forum statistics in the time it was active:

  • 700 registered members
  • 500 themes created
  • 2K posts posted
  • 57 connected members at the same time was our most connected!

Again, thank you to all those who supported us throughout this time and to new members for being part of this great global Spanish Community of Power BI.

If you want to start from scratch, this is a good place

then at EDX you have two very good courses

this one is in Spanish and it is very didactic

the other is translated and it's very good

Best regards!!

This is a link to a tutorial on Youtube that has the advantage of having practical exercises attached to reality plus it is quite complete.

Good luck

Cordial Greeting:

My doubt is this: I need to visualize the monthly and annual growth of my sales; for this, I created the calendar table and related the tables and then for the annual percentage varication I created the variables and used the "sameperiodlastyear" function, as follows:

VarAnual =
VAR present SUM(Sales Points[NetoAntIVA])
VAR passed- CALCULATE(SUM(SalesPoints[NetoAntIVA]); PREVIOUSYEAR(Calendar[Date]))

.. and for the monthly variation I used the "previousmonth" function, like this:

VarMensual =
VAR present [NetoAntesIVA]
VAR passed- CALCULATE([NetoAntIVA]; PREVIOUSMONTH(Calendar[Date]))

But when I'm going to integrate it into the table, the column appears blank.

If anyone can help me with that, I'd really appreciate it.

Good morning. Thank you for this initiative.

If I have three tables: employees, eLearning training performed and Historic.

To simplify I have 10 employees:

Employee 1 Partner

Employee 2 Director

Employee 3 senior

Employee 4 senior

Employee 5 Staff

Remaining employees up to 10 are all staff

All employees with Senior and Staff status have to do elearning 1 and all employees elearning 2

In the historical table I have the fields used and status.

Employee 1 performed elearning 1

Employee 2 performed elearning 1

Employee 4 enrolled elearning 1

Employee 5 performed elearning 1

Employee 7 enrolled elearning 1

Employee 10 performed elearning 1

Employee 1 enrolled elearning 2

Employee 4 performed elearning 2

Employee 5 performed elearning 2

Employee 7 enrolled elearning 2

I need a graph for every elearning that tells me which employees are enrolled, realized and those that are not registered or performed.

Thank you very much.

I have the following problem:

when I start Power BI Desktop I get the following error and won't let me continue:


could you please help me


Usually that type of error is caused by installation problems. The recommendation: Uninstall the program, restart the computer and reinstall (if the program is downloaded from the Web. If it's enterprise to call IT)

Best regards

Thank you for this space! I am discovering Power BI at the suggestion of a computer advisor from the company where I work and I am delighted with all its potential. I am currently following ana María Bisbé York's courses on Linkedin Learning.

I hope to learn a lot with you.

Greetings from Argentina.
