Power BI Weekly Issue 163: 28th June 2022

Not a huge amount of content this week, but we've had one pretty neat update which is that Preview data is now available in the dataset details page. You'll now see a pane on the right of your screen on the dataset details page with the tables and columns within the dataset, which you can use to take a quick peek at the data and export it if you wish (there's even a check-box at the table level to select all columns within that table (which still doesn't exist in Desktop, but oh well)). Elsewhere this week, Barry Smart has shown how Python and Power BI can work well together in his blog Extract insights from tag lists using Python Pandas and Power BI, Marco Russo has gone into depth helping us understand the optimization of SWITCH, and Kim Manis has joined Kelly Kaye on the Community Show talking about Synapse and Power BI.
