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.

For me its very important this, once I need to compare date of different tables.
Waiting anxiously.

RE: Moving/Rearranging Calculated Columns

This is really important.

Also if you add a DAX calc column and then go back to Power Query and add another column there there's no way of seeing which columns are which in the data view. And they are all mixed up.

RE: Moving/Rearranging Calculated Columns

Please enable the Rearranging of all columns (even non calculated ones).

RE: Moving/Rearranging Calculated Columns

Powerbi is hell of a problem... Why can't we swap columns in the data view.. The union is messing all the data..

RE: Moving/Rearranging Calculated Columns

Please don't limit this to just calculated columns; enable rearranging ALL columns, as this would GREATLY simplify structuring tables!!!
