DAX Studio Released

I must admit, it is always great to find a new tool that you can fit into your BI workflow and DAX Studio which helps you edit DAX queries is one of those tools.   I was pleasantly surprised at the full functionality and deep feature set of this tool on CodePlex.

DAX Studio is a tool to write, execute, and analyze DAX queries in Power BI Designer, Power Pivot for Excel, and Analysis Services Tabular.  The tool is both an add-in for Excel 2010/2013/2016 and a standalone program.

DAX Studio  is maintained by a group of volunteers and is available on CodePlex here  with a great overview article at SQLBI .  A large number of features and functionality are included such as:

Tabular Object Explorer
Model Metadata
Function Metadata
DMV list
Choice of output modes
Connection Options
Connect to PowerPivot
Connect to SSAS Tabular Instance
Connect to Power BI Desktop
Query Editor
Bracket Matching
Intellisense Support
Find/Replace
DaxFormatter Support
Modern User Interface
Flexible Layout
Multiple Tabs
Office 2013 like Ribbon interface
Integrated Tracing
Query Plan Trace
Server Timing Trace
New Version notification
Single Installer

Give it a look and let me know what you think.
