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.

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?

RE: Moving/Rearranging Calculated Columns

Please pay attention to the user interface aspects (this like several others): it is essential for an efficient, effective and therefore winning software tool.
Thanks

RE: Moving/Rearranging Calculated Columns

UNION joins will only work if your two tables are exactly ordered the same way. If you have two tables with the same fields but different order, you are out of luck.

RE: Moving/Rearranging Calculated Columns

This feature would enable the ordering of fields - especially calculations when you are building up the full set of functions. Also it would help when you need to later add additional calculated fields that are related to previous ones!
