Re: Modeling data

Hi @Michelle_Garcia,

 

With Power BI Desktop, you should be able to change the data type of a field/column under Modeling tab by firstly selecting it from the FIELDS list.

If you're connecting the OneDrive file directly on Power BI service, then there is currently no option to change the type of data field. Smiley Happy
