Extracting Calculated Columns

Mar 1, 2012 at 2:57 AM

I understand that the DAX Editor retrieves Calculated Members on the existing Tabular Model. I think it would also be useful if it can also extract the definition of Calculated Columns too.  This would allow Tabular Model developers to easily edit / audit their DAX formula in Calculated Columns.

Thanks Julie, that's a good idea! We did not want to complicate the code, and it kind of worked well with measures. With calculated columns we'll need to send a batch with several ALTER's and ProcessRecalc and it can be slow, very slow. However, I will give it some thoughts.
