Data Source Table Name Change - Table structure the same - How to update PBIX file?

Hopefully this is an easy/quick question

 

Recently our DBA's informed us that they were going to be renaming some Oracle table names to conform to their naming standards.

 

We had built some reports on these tables. Apparently everything else remains the same in terms of table structure, its just a renaming of the source table name.

 

Where/how do we update this in our pbix files?

 

I read that theres something that we can do in Power Query when initially importing the tables at the "Navigation" step? But not sure is that all, or is there anything else or is this even the right spot.

 

Thanks in advance

Hi @rodneyc8063 ,

 

Open Power Query and then select the table from left, where you need to update the DB details and then you would see something like below in the Applied Steps section in right side-

Then at your 'applied steps' double click 'Source' to browse and here you can update the new databse details.

Hi @NikhilKumar 

 

This is good to know and thanks for the tip, but I was actually wondering if the source TABLE name changes - How can I go about updating the TABLE name in the .pbix file

 

Im guessing/hoping that if I can update the TABLE name, that the remainder of the report would work as expected?

 

All columns are the same, its just a TABLE renaming from the source
