DAX Function Name Different than Excel Name – Excel Challenge

We are fresh off the heels of our greatest Excel Challenge ever.  In the previous challenge we asked our viewers “What fantastic cult movie just celebrated its 30 year anniversary?”

The Excel.TV audience was spellbound.  There were no correct answers to this challenge.

The correct answer would have been “Spinal Tap“.

Upon further investigation it was discovered that Jordan had never even seen the movie and ironically is only 29 years old, which made the question even weirder.


Let’s move on.

The great prizes will move on to our next challenge.

Jordan asks…

“Many functions in Excel have the same name in PowerPivot. Name a function in Excel with a different name than its Excel counterpart”
