Unexpected error creating a relationship


When I try to create a realationship between this 2 tables





I get the error Object reference not set to an instance of an objeto


Any idea please?




Frequent Visitor

I am having the same problem when trying to create relationships in the relationships tab with the latest update (2.43.4647.541). The error appears even when I delete relationships that I had already created using this method and try to recreate them, but I know this is not a problem with my datasets because I can create them without any issues using the Manage Relationships method.



 Edit: I have used the method suggested by @MrPowerBIPro and it worked, thanks. However, I still don't know why it doesn't work the other way around as it used to before.

Hi @kintela


I used to have this kind of error.

I suggest you download again the {last} version of Power BI Desktop! You should get rid of this error.

I have just downloaded the version of the Power BI desktop web that I assume is the last no?



Drag "ID" from Centros Table to "ID" in Candenas Table. 

please drop me a not if it doesn't work

Enemy of can't
