Can't find DAX Commands on PowerBI

Hi! This is my first time in this forum. I would be glad if you could help me.

 

I am starting to work with PowerBI and it seems that knowing the different DAX commands could be very useful.

 

I've found the following problem: when transforming data on PowerBI, I can't find the function ISBLANK(), among many more functions like CONCATENATE() or FIND(). Even so, I can find them on DaxStudio.

 

My PowerBI version is pretty recent (2.91.884.0 64-bit (march 2021)).

 

Does someone have a clue of why could it be happening?

 

Thank you a lot!

@AlvaroCarrasco When transforming data you are in Power Query Editor and this uses power query (M) code, not DAX.

Oh! I didn't know it. Is there a way to use DaxStudio for transforming data then?

@AlvaroCarrasco Not that I am aware of. It is named DAX Studio after all... 😉
