Dissecting a Formula

I am working my way through Sam’s Data Transformations & Modeling. During one of the videos on Supporting Tables Sam builds out this formula.

Sales by Frequency Group =
CALCULATE( [Total Sales],
FILTER( VALUES( Customers[Customer Names] ),
FILTER( ‘Purchase Frequency’,
[Total Transactions] > ‘Purchase Frequency’[Min] && [Total Transactions] < ‘Purchase Frequency’[Max] ))))

(Reference This table and other formulas)
Total Sales = SUM( Sales[Line Total] )
Total Transactions = COUNTROWS( Sales )

  • I understand (because it explains it) but what do you think the best approach to dissecting this formula if I inherit a PBIX from someone?

Thanks in advance,
