Best way to update Power Bi report after the dataset structure changes.

Hello Community,

 

My dataset structure will change in the near future and I want to know what the best way to update my Power Bi report is. The structure change will mostly consist in columns being renamed / deleted. I want to know the best way to update the report without manually changing every measure and layer in the query editor.

 

Thank you very much for your time and help!

You will just need to work through any errors you see in the query editor when the data change.  Just rename your new columns to the old column names at the earliest step possible in your query editor, and then all the downstream steps should still work.
