Connecting 2 datasets that have tables with common names

Hi all,


I tried connecting with 2 datasets (Product Mix and Daily Sales) that have some tables with the same name, and it's causing some problem when I try update the dash.


Is it possible to solve that problem without contacting the dataset admin to change the tables name or delate the tables?


Exemple.: Dimension Calendar; Dimension Store Name with the same name on both data sets

Hi @Marcelo1011 ,


Are your data from Power BI datasets?

Since Table names and Column names are metadata, if the connection mode is Live connection, there is no option available to change them:

You can rename data sources (tables) as well as columns - you can also choose to rename columns for the entire data model or only for a given visual.
