Power BI Helper: Expression Dependency Trees

Reza Rad announces a new feature of Power BI Helper:

I’m excited to share the news with you that we have added a new feature in Power BI Helper; Expression Tree. Expression Tree will expand the tree of expression for a Measure or calculated column, you can see what other measures are used to create this expression, and where other measures, calculated columns, or even normal columns are located (in which table). This feature is in addition to previous two features of this tool which were; Showing tables and fields used in visualization pages of a Power BI Report, and ability to search for a column or table that used in visualization pages of a report. In this post, I’ll explain how this new feature works.

Read on for the explanation.  I can see this being quite useful.
