Report Builder Query Designer

I'm working in Power BI Report Builder version 15.6.1532.5

Please help me understand why when I hit the "Query Designer" button in Dataset Properties, this window pops up and requires DAX.

But, most relevant searchers for help on the internet show this window appears after the "Query Designer" button is clicked, that seems to be using SQL.

Hi @KReynolds 

 

This is because when using Paginated reports it is connecting to the Tabular Model which has a query language called DAX.

 

Previous versions of SQL Server Reporting Services connected to SQL Server and used the query language of TSQL.

 

You can drag and drop the columns into the Query builder and it will automatically create the DAX for you.

Query Designer is a bug and should be removed/commented out 

Vote to have QD removed from the m$ code base.
