Creating Groups - not saving edits

I've created a Description group (hundreds of products - trying to group them by product family) and have 12 groups so far.  Is there a limit to the number of groups as when I edit to add more they do not get saved.

 

Worse case scenario, I add a column to the dataset and create families that way, but really wanted to try using the Group feature.

 

Thanks in advance,

Dawn

Thanks for the suggestion.  I checked and that's the version that I'm running.  Tried it again and still not working.  I went ahead and added a column to my table and put group names in there to use for now.

Hi,
Im having the same issue with edits to groups not saving, appears to be a bug. 

Version: 2.76.5678.782 64-bit (December 2019)
 
Create new file, Enter data > (add some data)
Edit query > New group (add a group) > Ok
Edit query > Edit group (make an edit) > Ok
Edit query > Edit group (changes made in previous edit have not saved)
 
If you save, close and reopen the file inbetween edits in the edit group window then changes are saved.

I'm having the same issue on Version: 2.76.5678.782 64-bit (December, 2019).

Groups used to work before, I tested that on Version: 2.72.5556.801 64-bit (August, 2019) and it worked.

Same issue here, very frustrating.  Running version 2.76.5678.782 64-bit (December, 2019)

@dpeacock I'm having the same issue on Version: 2.76.5678.782 64-bit (December, 2019).

Very frustrating as my groups are quite dynamic and the feature was working well until about the fall of last year. Hope they come up with a bug fix soon! You're not alone.

I don't see any limitation as i tried till 30 groups.

If this helps, mark it as a solution.

Kudos are nice too.

That's the reference page I was using, but when editing it's not saving the additional groups.  Everything looks fine, I click OK and they go back in and they ones past the first 12 are gone.  Very weird.

@dpeacock 

Could you share the PBIX file if it is not sensitive?

I may be able to make a file without the sensitive info.  I'll play with it tonight and see what I can do.  Thank you for your time!

Hi @dpeacock ,

 

You may upgrade the Power BI Desktop to the latest version 2.76.5678.782, and try it again .
