dynamic columns display in table selection

i have a table with column names A1 A2 A3, i created in power query as dynamic column names and created a visual table with A1 A2 A3 and other selections.

next month the column names changes to B1 B2 B3. 


on table visual, the selection is unchecked and visual link is broken as A1 A2 A3 doesn;t exist.


How can i fix this issue.

Hi @sanjay009 ,


Do you want to automatically change the name of each column, replace A1 with B1, A2 with B2, and A3 with B3?

Or replace A1, A2, A3 in a column with B1, B2, B3?

What is your table structure? Is it screenshot one or screenshot two?






Could you please provide a mockup sample based on fake data or describe the fields of each tables and the relations between tables simply?

It will be helpful if you can show us the exact expected result based on the tables.

@sanjay009 - Yeah, that's a tremendously bad idea. You would need to unpivot those columns so that you end up with an Attribute column (column names) and a Values column (values).
