Custom Column Creation - Performance question

Hi all,

 

Does it make any difference if I add a Custom Column in the Query Editor versus by using a DAX calculation in the Desktop Report view please? I am thinking in terms of performance, as I need to get my report as efficient as I can get. Any and all help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

 

e.g.

 

Custom Column in Query editor

 

#"Added Custom" = Table.AddColumn(#"Changed Type", "Pipe CV €M", each [#"CV (converted).amount"]/1000000),

 

In Report View

 

Pipe CV €M = '1 NEU Pipeline'[CV (converted).amount]/1000000

Hi @Andshepch

 

my suggestion is that you'd add this custom column with Power Query (or better yet from a view in the Data Source if you're importing from a database).

 

Also note that to create DAX measures you do not need to add this custom column as you can divide the amount by 10,000 directly in your measures

Hi @Andshepch

 

I would suggest you create custom column in Query editor or create a measure in date view. Below is the article about performence for your reference. You may choose the best way according to your data model.
