I am very new to Power BI and trying to learn as I go.  I created a Project Online dataset via Power BI web, and then learned about Power BI Desktop which would give me greater functionality and created a new dataset via Desktop.  I found that the one created via the web automatically created certain measures which I would like to duplicate in my Desktop environment.  However, when I load the original dataset (created in Web) in the Desktop, I see only the Reports View, no Data or Relationship Views.  Therefore, I am unable to see the details of the measure.

Does anyone know the solution?  I thank you in advance for any suggestions!

Hi @Anonymous,

 

When you use live mode, all underlying data and relationship will be loaded, but you can't make any modeling/relationship change.(after recently release, you can use measure in live mode with AS tabular)

 

For your requirement, you can only achieve them in import mode.

Hello @v-shex-msft,

 

Thank you so much for the information and article link!  I have read and re-read both, but am still not sure how to proceed.  Ultimately, I am trying to recreate a measure which was created by the Power BI online service with my data.  However, have not found a way to view the construct of the measure.  I believe I would have to open the file in Power BI Desktop in order to view the construct.... is this suggesting I need to open that file in a different way?  What I have been doing in Desktop is Get Data from Power BI Service.  When I go to File > Import, I do not see an option which seems like it would open this existing file from the service.  I am obviously missing something here, I just do not know what.

Looking into this further, I found this article:  http://community.powerbi.com/t5/Service/Can-I-download-a-PBIX-version-of-a-report-or-dashboard-built... It does not look like there is a way for me to view the measure details in Desktop for a report created in the Power BI Service.  Thanks for your help, any way!
