How to replace text in Bulk for Calculated Columns -- Tabular Editor

Hi Community

 

I´ve found this script to change in bulk measures using Tabular Editor:


var FromString = "Text1";
var ToString = "Text2";

foreach(var c in Selected.Measures)
{
c.Expression = c.Expression.Replace(FromString,ToString);
/* Cycle over all measures in model and replaces the
FromString with the ToString */
}

 

 

It works pretty good for measures but dont seem to work for Calculated Columns because I get the following error.

Does anyone know how to solve this issue???

 

Thanks in advance

Hey @dbernabefdez 

 

After looking at the documentation and doing an example you should try the following code

 

var FromString = "Text1";
var ToString = "Text2";

foreach(var c in Selected.CalculatedColumns)
{
c.Expression = c.Expression.Replace(FromString,ToString);
/* Cycle over all measures in model and replaces the
FromString with the ToString */
}

 

Hope it works for you.

WOUU incredible!!!! Works great

 

I was making the mistake of using ""foreach(var c in Selected.Columns)"" instead of ""foreach(var c in Selected.CalculatedColumns)""

 

Thank you so much for your help
