Building a P&L Statement with Power BI

Matt Allington has the need for some financials:

A few weeks ago, Danielle Stein Fairhurst from Plum Solutions contacted me and asked if I would speak at her financial modelling meetup group (a topic of my choice related to Power BI). I decided to speak about creating a P&L using Power BI and DAX. I first learnt how to do this way back in 2015 when I met Derek Rickard. I was still fairly early on my DAX journey at the time and certainly didn’t have any experience with financial accounting using DAX. Derek shared with me how he built his P&L using Adventure Works. I have used these principles many times to help customers, and I thought it would be a great time to pass on that knowledge, and the skills I have learnt along the way on my blog.
