Copy a Query from one PowerBI file to another

Does anyone know how (if it is possible) to copy a query from one PowerBI file to another. I have a query that pulls data from CRM (Account Set) that I have customized (i.e. modified values, data types, calculated columns, etc.) that I would like to copy into a different powerBI file instead of having to redo the same query.




Since December in the queries editor you can simply right click->copy and then right click->paste into the target pbix

Cool, I hadn't seen passed this feature.

Thx @pqian

If you edit the query, select advanced editor from the ribbon, then just copy the code and do the reverse in the new file


I often save mine to text files for easy reference and transfer
