SQL server or PowerBI to create table relationship

Hi All,

 

What is the optimal solution for creating relationship between tables as per below details.

 

1) I am using SQL Server 2018 and Power BI Pro

2) 20 Tables (15 small tables , 5 heavy tables) exist in SQL having approx. 7 million records

3) To create reports, I need to make relationship between tables

 

Should I create relationship in SQL (Database Diagram ) OR in Powerquery using Import data functionality ?

I have created some relationship in PowerBI, Is there a possibility to import the same relationship in SQL Database Diagram ?

 

Thanks in advance.

@mridul ,

You can create relationship in both the modes(Import and Direct Query).

Hi @Tahreem24 ,

 

Thanks for your quick reponse.

Does this mean IMPORT functionality will be used and NOT Directquery ?
