To avoid getting the table name as a prefix in column names when combining tables in Power Query, you can use the following steps:Expand Columns Without Prefix:When you expand a column containing tables, you'll see a settings icon (a small gear icon) next to the 'Expand' step in the Applied Steps pane.

    1. Click the gear icon to edit the expand step.
    2. Uncheck the "Use original column name as prefix" option before expanding the columnsimages.png

Hi,we are using Semantic layer Azure Analysis Services ,live connection to PBI 



In direct query it is possible and in live I don't think it is possible as you are directly accessing DMV's .
