DAX Values
You have already seen that you can define a value through a literal (like “USA” and 100) or
through a reference to a column of a table. Although using literals is straightforward, the
syntax for referencing a column needs some attention. Here is the basic syntax:
'Table Name'[Column Name]
The table name can be enclosed in single quote characters. Most of the time, quotes can be
omitted if the name does not contain any special characters, such as spaces. In the following
formula, for example, the quotes can be omitted:
TableName[Column Name]
The column name, on the other hand, always needs to be enclosed in square brackets. Please
note that the table name is optional and can be missing. If the table name is omitted, the
column name is searched in the current table, which is the one to which the calculated column or
measure belongs. However, we strongly suggest that you always specify the complete name
(table and column) to avoid any confusion.
