Dataverse and importing Choice columns

Hello all,


Having a recuring issue thats really driving me nuts. I have numerous dataverse tables feeding into power bi reports through Directquery (Although in this instance Directquery isnt the issue). 


As we know when you import a table from dataverse where there is a choice column, you get both the unique number of the choice and the choice name. However, everytime i add a column to my dataverse table thats a choice and import this into Power BI, the choice name comes in as "null", even though there is data in there and the choice number is correct.


What is causing this? 


I found a different and much easier solution. I just had to click on "Solutions" and then "Publish all customisations". Then everything was fine.

Hi @Lexicaltje 


Try the solution in this thread: Can't see the display value of a choice column from a table in the Dataverse in power bi


After making changes to labels for a choice column, the table needs to have customizations published. So go to your Power Apps environment and click on Publish all customizations.

Hi @Lexicaltje 


Does the method in my previous reply work? Or have you found other methods?

Just came across this; 


Are you seriously tell me MS that this is the only way to do it? How ridiculous is that? I dont even understand what most of that means. You really need to fix this and make it simpler.
