Cannot Open PBIX

I started creating a PBIX yesterday and was messing about with the relationships before I saved and closed it. When I have gone to open it today, I get the following error. I do not want this relationship to have the Security Filter Behaviour set to Both Directions and I need to change it but the report just will not open. I did not publish it as I hadn't finished it so I can't download a version to carry on working. Can anyone advise how to get it open so I don't have to start it all over again??

Hi @archuleta28 ,


Thanks for your reply - I did see that thread initially but it appears to be more for fully corrupted files and nothing they suggest is allowing me to open my file.
