Hi,

 

How can I create an automated data dictionary out from Excel + Power Query + Power Pivot? I see in power pivot the option to add descriptions to measures but don't know how to use it to generate a data dictionary. 

 

My current workflow is: I build the measures and everything in Excel, publish to a Power Bi Service and then pull this PBI Service from Power BI Desktop to build my views and re-publish.

 

thanks so much! 

Pablo Fernandes
