October 2016 Update Issues

After updating to the October 2016 version of Power BI Desktop I get the following error for multiple pbix files: Failed to save modifications to the server. Error returned: "A circular dependency was detected:" If I un-install the October 2016 update and install the September 2016 update I do not get the error. Anybody else having this problem? Really would like to use some of the new features in the October 2016 update but I can't.

Hi,

Just to confirm i have the same problem with a number of files and had to go back to sept release.

It looks like it has something to do with a seperate table (i created this table in desktop using enter data) to bring in a sorting number which i have created a relationship too. I then use related() to bring the sort number to my main table and sort a column.

I am getting the exact same error

 

Error returned:'A measure, set, expression or data source with the name blah blah blah already exists in the 'Model' Model. 

 

But I've not amended anything since installing October's update this morning.

I had downloaded the September 2016 version last month so I just went into my downloaded files and found the previous version from that date. I did not see an option to download previous versions from the website.

Hi all,

After the October update we cannot find the Group or Binning options as per video tutorial. Under right click on bar chart there are only three options: See Data, Include, Exclude.

We use tabular model as data source.

 

Should it work with tabular ? Can I get some details about it?

Kjmar, I have a copy of all versions of Power BI, However installing a previous version still does not fix this issue.

 

Converting the pbix file to a zip does allow you to get into some of the config, but I have been unsuccessful in solving this issues.

 

Have to redo the whole report unfortunatley.

I also used a "related" custom sort column to another table. However, I was using the same table as a lookup table. When I deleted the custom column the error was rectified. I could then open the pbix file with the October 2016 update.

another thing to be aware of is if you have a measure the same name as a data connection, i had Orders as a data import and Orders as a measure, this will break on refresh and i couldn't rename the orders measure either!!
