    I'm not sure why this has been categorized under Custom Visuals - I think it refers to the built-in table object?

    Mike Honey commented  · 

    Actually AFAIK Excel doesn't do this - it would automatically widen such a table column to the full width of the column heading. In Excel you can manually set the width and manually set the column headings to wrap. This may be "too hard" and not worth working on - I imagine it would take a lot of coding to judge when to wrap and how wide to make the column. Perhaps manual column width and wrapping controls are a more realistic ask?

    This seems fairly easy - just an extension of the existing From Folder functionality. That way it would work with all file formats (Excel, JSON etc).

    I think you can already do this: from the View ribbon, check Formula Bar.

    Count me as one who has used "bad words" at this - I think calling it an "Editor" is almost ridiculous - it's a poorly conceived and executed "Text Box" at best. Perhaps this was OK when v1 came out, but that was over 5 years ago!

    Note there are a couple of open-source efforts that is which should be considered IMO:

    https://daxeditor.codeplex.com/

    @John Giddens - IMO this should be much simpler - just fundamental support for CSS would be best, rather than trying to pick a "winner" framework.

    If you are thinking of copying the SSAS-MD Designer's "Cube / Dimension Usage" tab (not a bad starting point), then please add functionality to copy and paste relationship definitions ("cells"). E.g. if I have defined a relationship between fact1.dimension2_key-> dimension2.dimension2_key, let us copy that and paste it into a different "cell" as: fact2.dimension2_key -> dimension2.dimension2_key.

    Sorry Paul, but personally I would prefer if RB was discontinued, and effort put into other SSRS or BI features. IMO It's a massive duplication of features/code (vs Report Designer in Visual Studio) and and of little practical use.

    You got my vote Paul. Another very similar scenario is a "Report Pack" style with multiple sub-reports. Many of them will share the same set of parameters.

    I should add, with the option to complete the refresh by either updating the Excel file, or by picking up the output from the Query and passing it along an SSIS dataflow - Power Query as an SSIS Data Flow Source.
