Advanced section not display

I am using Power BI Desktop (May 2022) and trying to change a table from DirectQuery to Import. However, in Model view -> table Properties pane, I only see General  section, the Advanced section doesn't show. Why?

 

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Hi @Anonymous ,

If you're connected by Direct Query, you'll see the message "Storage Mode: Direct Query(Click to Change)" in the status bar at the bottom right hand screen on Power BI Desktop:

Click on the message, then you should be able to change Direct Query to Import Model.

The second way is:  go to Model view-->Advanced and change the storage mode from DirectQuery to Import

if you cannot change, please update your Power BI Desktop version.

Thanks for your efforts & time in advance.

Thanks for your reply. The second way is just what I need but the "Advancde" is not showing thoug I have  updated to version "May 2022".

 

Do you know what version do I need to support this "Advanced" feature?
