Since Power BI April 2019 update I can´t open file

Hi,

Since Power BI April 2019, I can´t open one my Power BI desktop files.

The error starts with:

"Failed to save modifications to the server. Error returned: 'The expression refers to multiple columns. Multiple columns cannot be converted to a scalar value. A circular dependency was detected: ..."

 

The file worked fine this morning, and when tried to open it later this evening after installing the April updated, I have not been able to open it.

Other files I have tried work fine.

 

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi @Dasaecor ,

 

Upload this .pbix file onto Power BI Service, test if it can be opened on service site. Then, download it locally, and open it via Power BI desktop to see if it works.
