I'd like to be able to move/rearrange my Calculated Columns in the Data View so they can be placed next to columns where they would be more relevant and make more sense.


It would be nice also if the Calculated Columns are shaded darker as in PowerPivot so we can easily distinguish them.


Also please enable Ctrl+A (Select ALL) in the Data View - currently it works only in the Query Editor.


This way we could Select ALL Data in the Data View where it would include the Calculated Columns.

Must be able to reorder fields in the Data Field pane, in any order desired, at will. And in/from all other places where the same set of fields is presented.Must be able to reorder any Display Folders created in the Data Field pane, in any order desired, at will. And in/from all other places where the same set of fields and folders is presented.

RE: Moving/Rearranging Calculated Columns

This is a truly unacceptable lapse in basic functionality of a data/BU GUI........!

RE: Moving/Rearranging Calculated Columns

Please introduce this feature: I accidentally edited a non-calculated column. And now this column is at the end of the table, after many, many calculated columns (meaning I cannot redo all the calculated columns). This largely decrease the viewability of the data table...

RE: Moving/Rearranging Calculated Columns

And could we have the default be the order in the data source please! If you have gone to a lot of trouble cleansing your data, it's ridiculous that Data View shows the columns according to the order you last edited them!

RE: Moving/Rearranging Calculated Columns

This type of feature usually comes out of the box with programs.

RE: Moving/Rearranging Calculated Columns

This feature is really needed. Why Power BI allow us to rearrange columns in visualisations tab but not allowing us to save it?
