How to find unused columns using DMV functions?

Hello, 

 

Is there a way to pull unused columns  with DMV functions in DAX or SSMS ?  Power Pivot Utilities has this cool feature "list unused columns". Does anyone know if anything like that could be returned with DMVs, so a Power BI model could be queried ? 

 

Thanks

Hi @NatashaSchuster,

 

Try to use the tool Dax Studio from @marcorusso and @AlbertoFerrari.

 

It as DMV formulas.
