The Power BI Gold for Sales dataset is organized in a star schema data model.
The Fact tables contain information about individual transactions from sources such as sales orders, posted sales invoices and posted credit memos. Dimension tables provide additional context and attributes to the transactional data, such as customer and product information.
Fact tables store transactional data and support summarizations such as SUM, AVG, COUNT and more.
The sales table is a composite table made up of records from three sub tables;
- Sales Value Entries
- Sales Lines from shipped not invoiced sales orders
- Sales Lines where the outstanding quantity is greater than zero

|Document No.||The unique identifier assigned to the document or record associated with the transaction.|
|Document Type||The type of document or record associated with the transaction, such as Sales Order or Invoice.|
|Entry No||For value entries this is the entry no. For all other records this is the sales line number.|
|Entry Type||For value entries this is the type of entry. For all other records the value is “Sales Line”|

Sales budgets can be filtered by Customer, Location and Item.
