Manage Relationships not working

I have several issues building relationships using Managed Relations. I'm using the PowerBI desktop in DirectQuery mode. I have over a dozen tables taken from a database, where I've done some renaming/rearranging to the columns. I'm attempting to join them. First, the Autodetect option is greyed-out. That's not a big deal as I'd prefer to connect them manually, but I'm curious to know why.

When I select New and in the Create relationship popup, I select the table name, the first problem is the three lines of preview data does not appear for some tables, but it does for others. If I select two tables and connect on a column, PowerBI will calculate the cardinality automatically, but when I click Ok, it doesn't show any defined relationships in the Manage relatinships popup and the whole program freezes. I have to shut down the program entirely.

 

When I first brought these tables in, PowerBI did autodetect many of the relationships. I removed these prior to editing the tables. I planned to manually reconnect the tables afterward, but am stuck at this point.

 

These tables have a lot of data, but I wouldn't think that would affect my ability to join the tables. Any help much appreciated.

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

Based on my test using Power BI desktop version :2.68.5432.841. I cannot reprodeuce your issue her. Could you please update your Power Bi desktop to the latest version and try again. Or try to refresh the data and check again.

This did not solve my problem. Manage Relationship is always greyed-out even after data refresh.
