Person filed not expanding in Power Bi desktop

Hi

 

I'm having issues with a SharePoint list and a person field while building a fleet management report.  I want to report on Current Drivers Display name field.

 

If you compare the Current Driver (SharePoint Person column) and Created By (the default sharepoint field) you can expand the default one but not the other.  

 

In Power BI you can drill down and see the values in the data but it is missing the n1112997_3-1621932690831.png icon to extract the fields into the wider data set.

Am I being thick or is there another way to do it?  

 

Many thanks in advance.

Hi, @n1112997 

 

Select the Current Driver column, use the Replace Values feature, replace the blank with null and try again

Thank you very much!  That had me completely baffled.
