Cannot see formulas for measures

I recently created a dashboard with a number of calculated measures. Unfortunately, the tables are connected to an Azure server that I no longer have access to. When I click on the Model page, I can still see the original three tables with all of the fields and measures listed. But when I click on the calculated measures, I cannot see the formulas.


Without the connection to the tables, is there any way that I can still see the formuals for the calculated measures? Thanks!

Hello @delsner , were you able to figure it out. I am in the same situation. Trying to replicate a report but can't see the definition for the measures being used.

Its because you download files with network connection instead of import mode, then you don't have access to change measures and see data model.

I have the same issue with a pbix file.  I cannot see some of the dax calculations in some measures. The measures show in report view but not in data view or model view:

Hi @delsner , 

I can't reproduce your problem, please check whether you set hidden in measure or column. If you want to see measure or column expression, you could see it in Report or Data View, you can't see this in Model View. In addition, you said "Without the connection to the tables, is there any way that I can still see the formuals for the calculated measures", I think this can't be achieved, measure or columns are based on table value, if you don't have table, how you create measure. Or you could create measures or columns in Tabular cube, then you could import the measure separately , but you can't view its expression.

Check on the Report or Data page instead, then you'll get a formula bar on top:

Unfortantely your suggestion doesn't work because I can't see the fields in the Report or Data view. I only see the fields in the Model view.

Can you provide some screenshots, or the pbix file?
