Copy Table

I have built a date table within a Power BI desktop file and it works great.  Now I want to copy that date table and paste it in all my other Power BI desktop files instead of rebuilding the date table in each individual file I have.  I just can't figure out how to do  it.  I can select "Copy Table" on the date table but when I open a different desktop file it will not allow me to paste it.

Re: Copy Table

@Usates Unfortunately you can't copy tables between two pbix files. There are few options you can consider.

 

1. Replicate steps you did to create table in second pbix file

2. Make a copy of existing pbix file and use that 

3. Export power bi template file and use that

 

In my opinion power bi template file seems the best option for your scenario.
