Hi Thomas,

Thank you for the descriptive series of articles related to SSAS Tabular.

I have one question here regarding multiple foreign keys to Date dimension.
What if we duplicate the Date table and added it twice to represent Invoice Date and Delivery Date separately? Is it an acceptable practice?
I'm a novice to Tabular so your opinion is really helpful.

Thanks
Thomas LeBlanc

Yes, you can have separate Date dimensions/tables in a tabular model like you described. A later article will give this example along with a suggestion from Patrick LeBlanc on using DAX Cross Join in measures.
