Schema change in database


I have a table in which there can be a new field added at any point of time. No deletion or column name change will happen, just new fields.

I do not want to update the model everytime the schema is updated in the database. But the refresh should just directly bring in the new field in the table.

What is the solution for this. Is this possible?

Please let me know.

Hi @Anonymous ,


What do you mean by model change here when a new column is added?

Will your relationships within the tables change when new columns are introduced?

Can you add more details please?

There wont be any impact in the relations at the model level in Power BI.


I have the following fields in the database:


StatusID     CompanyId       Field1   Field2   Field3       Field4


This structure can change any time a new field is added in the table.

I have created a procedure to handle that at the database level.

Now, when I imported the table in Power BI desktop, it had only the above fields. If new Field5 is added at DB level, without doing changes in the model, is it possible that Field5 shows up in the Desktop.

I am a newbie in Power BI so may be I am not using the right terminologies.

But this is what I want to know if it is possible to do in PowerBI desktop.
