Free Microsoft DA-100 Exam Actual Questions

The questions for DA-100 were last updated On Jan. 07, 2022

Question #1

You have a Microsoft Power BI report. The size of PBIX file is 550 MB. The report is accessed by using an App workspace in shared capacity of

The report uses an imported dataset that contains one fact table. The fact table contains 12 million rows. The dataset is scheduled to refresh twice a day at 08:00 and 17:00.

The report is a single page that contains 15 AppSource visuals and 10 default visuals.

Users say that the report is slow to load the visuals when they access and interact with the report.

You need to recommend a solution to improve the performance of the report.

What should you recommend?

Reveal Solution Hide Solution
Correct Answer: C

DirectQuery: No data is imported or copied into Power BI Desktop.

Import: The selected tables and columns are imported into Power BI Desktop. As you create or interact with a visualization, Power BI Desktop uses the imported data.

Benefits of using DirectQuery

There are a few benefits to using DirectQuery:

DirectQuery lets you build visualizations over very large datasets, where it would otherwise be unfeasible to first import all the data with pre-aggregation.

Underlying data changes can require a refresh of data. For some reports, the need to display current data can require large data transfers, making reimporting data unfeasible. By contrast, DirectQuery reports always use current data.

The 1-GB dataset limitation doesn't apply to DirectQuery.

Question #2

You build a report to help the sales team understand its performance and the drivers of sales. The team needs to have a single visualization to identify which factors affect success. Which type of visualization should you use?

Reveal Solution Hide Solution
Correct Answer: A

The key influencers visual helps you understand the factors that drive a metric you're interested in. It analyzes your data, ranks the factors that matter, and displays them as key influencers.

The key influencers visual is a great choice if you want to:

See which factors affect the metric being analyzed.

Contrast the relative importance of these factors. For example, do short-term contracts have more impact on churn than long-term contracts?

Question #3

You have a data model that contains many complex DAX expressions. The expressions contain frequent references to the RELATED and RELATEDTABLE functions.

You need to recommend a solution to minimize the use of the RELATED and RELATEDTABLE functions.

What should you recommend?

Reveal Solution Hide Solution
Correct Answer: A

Combining data means connecting to two or more data sources, shaping them as needed, then consolidating them into a useful query.

When you have one or more columns that you'd like to add to another query, you merge the queries.

Note: The RELATEDTABLE function is a shortcut for CALCULATETABLE function with no logical expression.

CALCULATETABLE evaluates a table expression in a modified filter context and returns A table of values.

Question #4

You have a sales system that contains the tables shown in the following table.

The Date table is marked as a date table.

DatelD is the date data type. You need to create an annual sales growth percentage measure.

Which DAX expression should you use?

Reveal Solution Hide Solution
Correct Answer: B

SAMEPERIODLASTYEAR returns a table that contains a column of dates shifted one year back in time from the dates in the specified dates column, in the current context.

Question #5

You build a report to analyze customer transactions from a database that contains the tables shown in the following table.

You import the tables.

Which relationship should you use to link the tables?

Reveal Solution Hide Solution
Correct Answer: A

Each customer can have many transactions.

For each transaction there is exactly one customer.
