@AshDil , I doubt you can add calculated on a live connection 

Hi @amitchandak ,


I'm not able to see whether the connection is live or import for Power bi dataset.

Please help me to know how to deal with power bi dataset.




Hi, @AshDil 


The Power bi Desktop connection to the Power bi dataset is a live connection. Unable to create calculated columns, you can try to create Maesure.



The following link can be consulted for more information about the processing and limitations of the Power bi dataset.
