[Help Needed - BUG] PBI Data View not letting me filter on the column I selected

Dear PBI Community, 

Issue - PBI Data View not letting me filter on the column I selected, it jumps to a random column/dimension instead. 

I.e. Select Column I want to filter, click on the down arrow on the column >>> Instead of seeing the drop down, it takes me to a random column in the dataset. 

I have tried all basic troubleshooting, even recreating the column, and even reinstalling PBI Desktop itself. 

As you can imagine, this is incredibly frustrating and tiresome. 

This is happening across multiple workbooks/ columns, not just one column. 

Any help would be greatly appreciated. 


Thank you,

There is an updated August PBIX available now, downloaded it and I don't seem to have the column selection/column jumping issue.  Thought I'd post in case people were still on an older PBIX version.


Download Microsoft Power BI Desktop from Official Microsoft Download Center

Same for me: whenever I try to filter a column the screen "jumps" to the beginning of the table, I can only filter the first columns in that side of the table. It's happening for every single report and every single table in Data View.

Unfortunately, I have a different experience and the issue still persist eventhough PBI version is up to date 😞

Hi @v-cazheng-msft 

Do we have any update on this?

Just an observation - we've noticed this is an issue with larger datasets. 

Not so much in smaller ones.


Thank you,
