Topic         Reporting Services - working with a SSAS Tabular data source
Despite the attention given to Self-Service BI, we still have to satisfy the needs of our general report consumers. For those of us that have worked our way through the world of MDX to build Reporting Services data sets from SSAS multi-dimensional databases, we are now faced with having to build reports using SSAS Tabular databases. It is not very complex, but it does help to get shown the DAX query patterns to produce SSRS datasets.
In this session we explore the anatomy of a DAX query. We briefly cover the basics, then tackle parameterised queries, multi-value parameters and cascading parameters.  Finally we will explore the world of dynamic DAX queries and how to make your code readable and maintainable.
