is there a way to move calculated fields listed in excel pivot table into power bi



I have a bunch of pivot tables in excel with around 500 calculated fields used. I was wondering if there is a way to move these fields and load as measures in power bi instead of manually recreating these

@gautham2492 , if you import them as table then it will be column only

Easily convert your Excel Power Pivot model to Power BI

THank you. So i would need to convert my existing pivot table in excel into a power pivot model and then import the power pivot model into power bi. Is that the only way to acheive this? i understand if i directly load the pivot table it will only be static text

HI @gautham2492,

I think you can also try to re-create the calculated field on power bi side. These calculate fields may not fully similar as excel sheets formula.(power bi data mode does not include row and column index) 

I'd like to suggest you use matrix visual with your category fields on axis and calculated fields to value to reproduce these effects.

BTW, if you are confused about coding formula, please share some dummy data and expected result to test:

This was going to be my approach but since there are around 500 calculated fields i wanted to see if there is an easier way to import them from excel pivot tables into power bi instead of recreating each of them. But it looks like this is the only approach available
