What is a PBIX?
A PBIX file is the default file storage format used by Power BI Desktop. In essence, it's a compressed file containing layout information, data, and connection information.
Using the File

Parameters can be edited by clicking on Transform Data > Edit Parameters in the ribbon menu at the top of the screen.
A new modal will be presented that allows you to edit the Profile ID, Start Date, and End Date.
Once the parameters are edited, refresh the data.
Every time a parameter is changed, a refresh of the data is necessisary. To refresh the data, click on the Refresh option in the ribbon menu at the top of the screen.
If you have not accessed the data before, you'll be prompted to authenticate your access. Enter in your account name\username in the username field and your password in the password field.
As the data is being refreshed, you'll see the following screen. When completed, it will go away and the data will update based on the parameter settings.
