I'm building PowerBI model with composite model.
There are some table that's in import mode, and some which are DirectQuery.
I created calculated column on the imported table to perform value lookup from DirectQuery table.But the column only refreshed when I made dummy changes on the formula.
I can't refresh the calculated column value no matter what I do.
The use case here is User are performing data mastering on a tool.The DirectQuery table purpose is to allow us to get the latest mastered value from the tool into the imported table.
We can't convert the DirectQuery to Imported mode as the table refresh frequently.
On the other hand we can't switch the Imported table to DirectQuery because of the complex and large dataset.

None of them give me good answer.
It's hard to reproduce this issue on my side. If your desktop is not the latest version, please try updating to the latest version. In addtion, if you already have the latest version, could you please share the sample data and the calculate columns you have build for further analysis?
Here's the step:
1. create "pbi_test_import" in Azure SQL, Connect PowerBI to it as "import"
create view pbi_test_importasselect '1' as id, 10000 as outputunion allselect '2' as id, 10000 as outputunion allselect '3' as id, 10000 as outputunion allselect '4' as id, 10000 as outputunion allselect '5' as id, 10000 as outputunion allselect '6' as id, 10000 as outputunion allselect '7' as id, 10000 as output
2. Create another view "pbi_test_live", connect PowerBI as DirectQuery
create view pbi_test_liveasselect '1' as id, 'Brown' as usernameunion allselect '2' as id, 'Bear' as username
3. Do not set relationship between the 2 table.
4. Create column with following formula on "pbi_test_import" table
