I have some issues with the Data Type using AtScale as Data Source. All the data are in type text instead of the right format from AtScale Cube.

Re: Data Type - AtScale Connection

Hi @VanLy ,

 

You could change the data type in the query editor. You could automatically use the correct data type when you next refresh.

Re: Data Type - AtScale Connection

This is a known issue with Core PowerBI when using the AtScale connector.  The internal MSFT bug number is: 322414.  However, they are unlikely to work on the issue unless this issue gets more visibility from the forum.

Re: Data Type - AtScale Connection

Hi,

 

I can't change the data type through the Query Editor. When you connect to AtScale, you have to use the DirectQuery to be able to use the Cube and not the import option. Since, I am using DirectQuery, I can't go to the Query Editor.  All my data type remains in text instead...

 

Is it a Power BI issue? I contacted AtScale and they said it is an issue with the Power BI software because with Excel everything works fine.
