Anyone who uses PowerBI long enough has had a PBIX with 50-60 measures and it has become time consuming and tedious to mantain. In Excel you can do a quick find/replace to edit several formulas - in PowerBI you need to select each one individually. An "excel-like" interface for editing measures would save a lot of time! This would take PowerBI to the next level regarding productivity. I've prepared a mockup for this as well as a DAX Editor. Let me know what you think.

We've been leaning on the community tools like Tabular Editor, DAX Studio, BISM Normalizer, to provide high-end DAX editing capabilities. We don't have any short-term plans to add more DAX management tools to the product, but we'll be looking at ways to better integrate those tools.

Hi All,
Tabular editor & Dax Studio add-ons basically are these things.
Please check it out! It's awesome! :D

I tried this in Tabular Editor and it works just like Excel's "Find & Replace" function but would be even better if this is built in Power BI Desktop

D

Doesn’t Tabular editor do exact this?

D

Is it possible to create variables to control instances where you might have to change many different formulas?

Voted.
Meanwhile you may have a look at Power BI Sidetools : https://thebipower.fr/index.php/power-bi-sidetools/
It copies measures and calculated columns/tables to files and opens Visual Studio Code. At the moment it is read only but write access is in test.

As well as integrating it with VS Code to improve the user experience.

Would be so useful to be able to list which measures utilise a specific field. Further being able to list unused fields would be great. Thank you.

D

Great idea, should have already been a feature!

D

We are still hoping...
