Cannot Update Metadata

I keep getting this error, only starting happening with the new Power BI update:


Failed to save modifications to the server. Error returned: 'Expression in partition 'Claims-cbebbd9f-5bea-4a45-a7d9-bfccf3008364' in table 'Claims' references an entity that is not supported. One example of unsupported entity is the function '#shared'.

Does anyone have any insight?

Hi @tpatel1989 ,

Please try to disable  "Store datasets using enhanced metadata format" feature if the version of your Power BI Desktop are old one and check whether the issue still persist(Click File > Options and settings > options > preview features).

Besides that, you can update the version of your Power BI Desktop to the latest one and check whether that can resolve the problem.
