Re: Change Data Source

@nannimora Sure, create a new PBIX file that connects to your SQL data source. Open up Advanced Editor in Power Query and copy the Source and Navigation lines.  Now open a copy of your report that connects to the PostgreSQL database. Open Advanced Editor and replace the Source and Navigation lines with your copied Source and Navigation lines.
