Create Custom Columns | Live Connection



I'm integrating data throught live connection. When the integration is done by live connection can't create custom columns.


Anybody know how create custom columns in other form?


Thank you for your help.




Hi @Anonymous,


When you get data with Live Connection, it is not available to create custom column in Query Editor.


But for some data sources like SQL Server DB, you could still create calculated columns as well as measures via DAX.
