Tabular editor - error

Hello everyone, 

I'm trying to add new calculation through Tabular editor but when trying to save my work I'm getting the following error. Does that mean that cannot be used with query mode? TIA

@cpereyra Tabular Editor has to be import mode, I do not believe it supports saving to Direct Query. @marcorusso ?

Re: Tabular editor - error

DirectQuery is supported for calculation groups and Tabular Editor can create calculation groups on DirectQuery models.

Please, create a repro PBIX file that you can share (possibly using Contoso) and submit it to Issues · otykier/TabularEditor (

Hi @cpereyra ,


I can't reproduce your problem.


What is the storage mode of 'Merge1'?

My date table('Table') is a calculated table. My cust table is 'Direct Query' storage mode.
