Broken Visuals Due to Field Name appended to Dataset Name

Hello, 

 

I need help.

Today I refreshed the normal dataset whichI refresh on daily basis and the entire visuals break. I noticed the field names are no longer recognized, hence the visual break. 

 

Before this, the field names appears as individual. For example below:

Dataset name: EmployeeData

Field Name 1: First Name

Field Name 2: Last Name

Field Name 3: Birth Date

 

After today's refreshed, the field names are appended to the Dataset name. For example below:

Dataset name: EmployeeData

Field Name 1: EmployeeData.First Name

Field Name 2: EmployeeData.Last Name

Field Name 3: EmployeeData.Birth Date

 

1. Can anyone help to advise why this is happening?

2. Can anyone advise the way to fix this problem, for example if there is a way to format the field name display?

 

I have hundreds of fields in the dataset and I would appreciate not to update the field name one by one. 🙂

 

Many thanks in advance

@Mimi_Ibrahim what is your data source? did you made any changes in power query steps that field names are changed. I never saw this before so not sure what is going on here.

@parry2k  My data source is Cloudera. I didn't do any change except for updating my PBI desktop to the latest one. 

Do you know if the field names can be formatted?

Hi @Mimi_Ibrahim ,

 

You may use the Merge feature for the table EmployeeData in Query Editor, and ticked the option "Use original column name as prefix". If so, you may check your data query, and not tick this option.
