Delete a Table (SSAS Tabular)


In the model designer, you can delete tables in your model workspace database that you no longer need. Deleting a table does not affect the original source data, only the data that you imported and were working with. You cannot undo the deletion of a table.

To delete a table

  • Right-click the tab at the bottom of the model designer for the table that you want to delete, and then click Delete.

  • When you delete a table, the entire tab that the table was on is deleted.

  • If any measures were associated with that table, the definition of the measure will also be deleted.

  • If you created any calculated columns using that table, columns in that table are also deleted; any calculated columns in other tables that use columns from the deleted table will display an error.
