Do you will have an outdated report created in 2016? For those who do, then you realize that the visuals’ fashion was fairly completely different again then. For those who don’t prefer to see all visuals of their outdated fashion the place the headings overlap the opposite visuals and also you don’t know how one can swap the visuals to their fashionable fashion, then proceed studying.

Some builders undergo a number of ache to get the visuals to work within the fashionable fashion. I even know some builders copied all queries from the outdated file’s Energy Question and pasted them to a brand new Energy BI file. Then they used Tabular Editor to repeat the tabular objects from the outdated report back to the brand new one. And a few even began to construct every part from scratch. If you’re a kind of builders, bear in mind that there’s a easy setting that may assist to rapidly swap all of the outdated visuals to their new fashionable fashion.
