Get data from another power BI Table / File

Hi

 

Load data from another power BI table / File

 

Can this be done. And if so how

 

(Or is it possible to save a table in a fast upload mode).

 

 

Thanks

I haven't found a way to copy tables yet.  Right Click > Copy Table makes a dupicate of the data in the table, but not the definitions.

 

I'd be interested in this as well.  I suppose you could write a long CALCULATETABLE with ADDCOLUMNs everywhere and formulas - but that seems onerous.

 

Wonder if you can connect and pull data from multiple datasets - kind of make different data marts from one source "Cube"?

Yeah I can't see how its done

 

This would be useful for incremental loading. So one Power BI App file  would be set up to incremental load say tables from an ERP system. And then the other App files would access this one App File

 

I might make a suggested how to improve at some point.

Anyone did this? I would be nice to centralize translation within one pbix. Instead of have the same logic in several pbix files. This is not very maintanable.

 

Or is it perhaps possible to save the table after the transactions into a seperate file? and load this file in another pbix?

I suggested this on another thread: you could use Power Query to do the transformations centrally and load the data into the Excel worksheet. Then your PBIX files can load the data from there to do the modelling/reporting you need.

 

Thanks
