Relationship "link" is visually broken in the model view - what does it mean?

I'm building a new report and I've established a relationship between two tables, one being a Dual mode table and one being Import/local. The Import/local table is a date table, and the join is on a date field (obviously ;).

 

Anyway, the relationship appears to work naturally, charting and such using the Dates Import/local table works fine, but I just don't know why the visual link is displayed as it is. It looks like it's trying to tell me something, but I can't find anything about what it means (image below).

Hi @frittzy ,

 

This is the new relationship icon that appears when you are using a composite model.

Nothing to panic 🙂

 

Thanks,

Thank you. The visual doesn't look good for a 'link' between tables, but yea, it's working fine, so had to ask. Much appreciated!

@frittzy Seems that this relationship only appears between a Dual mode table and a DirectQuery table. The standard relationship shows up between Dual mode table and Import mode table.
