Re: visualization monthly - need help

You can create a month field in your date dimension, and should do so anyway:


// Power Query
MonthNumber =
Date.Month( [Date] )

MonthName =
Date.ToText( [Date], "MMMM" )

MonthNameShort =
Date.ToText( [Date], "MMM" )

// DAX
MonthNumber =
MONTH( DimDate[Date] )

MonthName =
FORMAT( DimDate[Date], "MMMM" )

MonthNameShort =
FORMAT( DimDate[Date], "MMM" )
