Re: Cannot Delete Query/Parameter/Table

Hi. 

 

I think i might have found the solution to this one. It's silly

Home -> Manage Parameters

 

See if you can find the sample beeing referenced there. Delete it. 

That worked for me atleast Smiley Happy

Hi Christer, the problem we have is that the referenced paramater is not showing up on the "Manage Parameters" list:

Re: Cannot Delete Query/Parameter/Table

Thanks for sharing Christr, this did not fix the issue for me. I have no parameters, still have something being referenced.

Re: Cannot Delete Query/Parameter/Table

I have the problem also.  "Sample File Parameter2 (2)" is supposedly referencing a query that I didn't created, but there is no such parameter and not one single shred of Power Query code references the query or the parameter.

 

The problem is the result of using some of the transformations available on the toolbar to filter the data.  These transformations created multiple folders of queries, some of which could be deleted, and some of which can't.  It is absolutely a bug somewhere in Power BI.

Re: Cannot Delete Query/Parameter/Table

Has anyone heard anything more on this?

 

I've renamed mine for the time being so it is out of the way but it's frustrating that it can't be deleted as I have number of queries already and it's just occupying space.

Re: Cannot Delete Query/Parameter/Table

Hi @StanleyBlack ,

I have not heard anything on this issue.  Because I have another issue (a relationship that disappears

every time I refreshed the data), I rebuilt the entire report by copying everything from the old/broken

report into a new one.  With this method, I was able to get rid of the unused parameter, but Microsoft

has never offered a solution for simply deleting it.  Based on what I hear at PUG meetings and what I see

from my own bug reports, I doubt Microsoft can keep up with the bugs being submitted.
