Hi All,
A work colleague (who has now lef)t created a power pivot dashboard/report.

Im trying to make some changes as the business has changed directions for its reporting.
The dashboard imports one another excel file and then refreshes tables as you would expect.

My issue is, there is a column that calculates a "finalstatus" and i have no idea where this column is or how it is calculated. Another colleague has said that i could find it in menu Analyze, then Fields, items & sets, then calculated field or item. Although when i go there, its greyed out so i can select them.

I have also looked in queries and connections and gone through the files/tables there and cant find the "finalstatus" column.

Does anyone have any suggestions?
thanks
Sam

I am a noob at PowerPivot but try going into PowerPivot > Data Model > Manage (Office 2013). This should open Data Model window which will show you all the tables added to data model. From there you can check column names (tab names at bottom).

Also you can add column via Power Query which can also add tables to Data Model. To view Power Query's go to Power Query > Workbook Queries > Show Queries (Office 2013).

Hope that helps.
