POINT to a Different Database

I have a report created from a table in which I've created many formulas and measures.  I need to import a new table (not possible to update the current table).  Is there anyway to point the current database to the new table and maintain the formulas and measures or do I have to recreate them in the new table?

 

Hope this makes sense.  Thanks.

If the table was loaded through the query editor, then you could change the query to the new source and your existing measure should still be there. One way to do this would be to create a new query to connect to the new table and then copy and paste the M code from that query (from the Advanced Editor) over the M code of the old query.
