Calculations - Causing Slowness - Looking for Alternative Approaches

I posted the problem that was solved (greatly) in the link below. After getting over that hurdle, I'm realizing that perhaps I need to take a different approach. Basically, in Power BI, I connect to a spreadsheet and then it runs the calculations. There's a lot of data, so scrolling down through the table of data on the report visualization page takes time. I'm wondering if it's better to somehow have these calculations run and have the new round of data saved as a different table in Power Query? If so, how would I do that? And maybe it's better to run it before trying to load up the report? Looking for any advice. Here's the link to my other post on getting my calculations correct.

Re: Calculations - Causing Slowness - Looking for Alternative Approaches

Hi @saturation 

It seems your problem is :

scrolling down through the table of data on the report visualization page takes time.

 

Which columns/measures do you add to report visuals? how many visuals on a report page?

 

To improve Power BI report performance, you could refer to this article.

  • Use filters to limit report visuals to display only what’s needed
  • Limit visuals on report pages
  • Optimize your model
  • and so on

Also, you could use Performance Analyzer to examine report element performance, then you can find the cause to slowness.
