SSAS Tabular, do not see table after import

Computer Mike 86 Reputation points

I am connecting to an Oracle database. I want to use a native sql query for my source as opposed to a table. I select a table cause I don't see an option to add a query, then once I have the connection I create a query using = Value.NativeQuery(... I see the data, looks good. I select import and close the query editor but no table. Anyone know why I can't see my table?

Any help appreciated,

    Not sure where and how you have used the query, but you could try right click the Data Source and then choose Import New tables. Add a table

    Also about Native query, you could try follow these steps ,see if the issue still there or not : Import data by using a native query

    If you still have the issue, you could share us more details.

    You could try create new project and follow the steps to test if it is a permission issue with your Visual Studio . And test with simple local data see if table appears.

    Thanks for replying LukasYu-msft,

    I followed the directions in your link "Import data by using a native query" above. I am able to import a table from my data source and see it fine. When I follow the directions for a Native Query. In the Power query window, my query works fine I see the data. I hit import ( or close and update), the query window closes and nothing more happens. My expression is not a table. I do see it under expressions. What am I missing? Can't figure out.

    Have you follow the 4th step ?

    To create a table, in Queries, right-click the query, and then select Create New Table. The new table will have the same name as the query
