Is it possible to load a table from the "data" sheet into another pbix file

In other words, i would like to use a table in the pbix file, in another pbix file and use it as a refence table

 

Why i would like this? If i create a table with quite some transformations and i would need the same logic in another dashboard, i would need to copy/paste the code. I rather put these transformations in a seperate pbix "repository"

With the December update you can use the workaround via R to export your data from Power BI to txt or SQL-server: http://www.thebiccountant.com/2015/12/28/how-to-export-data-from-power-bi-and-power-query/

Hi amien. At the moment, no. You could use Power Query in Excel to do your transformations, and load the data to the Excel worksheet. Then, use Power BI Desktop to pick up from that Excel and do your modelling/reports.
