Column in Desktop vs column in Service

Hello,

 

a day or two ago, I started with Datamart in Power BI Service. I have made some reports in Desktop and now I would like to do the same thing in Power BI Service. I connected some SQL tables to Datamart and when I use the Power Query from Service and add a column and paste the column lines from Desktop into Service, I get the error: a cyclic reference was encountered during evaluation. 

Isn't that strange because it should be the same? What do I need to do to make it do the same thing as in Desktop?

 

Regards

Hi  @WLFRD ,

Try copying everything from the advanced editor in Power query, replacing the one in Service.
