Create a report with multiple datasets

Good afternoon:
I ask you a query: I need to create a report that feeds on several different datasets that are in the same workspace. The point is that I get the data from "Power BI Dataset" for the first set. When I want to incoporate the rest of the datasets, it doesn't allow me to do so.
Is there an option to be able to incorporate more than one data set?
Thanks a lot

Hi @Syndicate_Admin 

 

You can try the preview feature Using DirectQuery for datasets and Azure Analysis Services. With this feature, you can connect to multiple Power BI datasets in DirectQuery mode. This will bring in all the models from existing connected datasets. You can also create new measures in the new report. Meanwhile, there are a few considerations to keep in mind when using this feature. Please refer to related section in above link.

@Syndicate_Admin yes with new composite model you can combine multiple datasets if that is your question. Read here Composite models over Power BI datasets and Azure Analysis Services - Power Platform Release Plan | ... and make sure to read the limitations.

@Syndicate_Admin thank you very much for your prompt response.

What we need is to create a third report with two sets of data corresponding to two existing reports. We need to have the source data of those two reports and all the formulas created in those reports in order to be able to put together a third report.

For that reason, we need to combine two datasets from two already created reports.

I think the solution you propose does not bring dax expressions.

Do you know how to do what I tell you?

Thanks a lot
