storage mode

HI All, It was originally imported but want to change to Direct Query. I selected Options → Preview Features → Model view. When I check Storage mode, I have three selections Import, Direct Query and Dual. I can only chose Import , other twos are in dark grey colour. What can I do? All the best, Paris

Re: storage mode

Hi Paris,

 

I'm afraid you have to rebuild it. The Import model can't be switched to Direct Query model. Please refer to the snapshot below.
