Documentation Error - Record.RemoveFields RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hello Microsoft,

    On the list of record function, Record.RemoveFields is described as though it reorders fields ("Returns a new record that reorders the given fields...") when it actually removes the given fields. :-)

    Also, on the page for Record.RemoveFields, the fields argument is describe as "A list of two items with the names of the fields that need to exchange their order in the record." This sounds like the fields argument for Record.ReorderFields. I believe the correct description here for RemoveFields should be something like "A list of the names of the fields that should be removed from the record."

    On a related topic, documentation pages have a "Contribute" button near the top right. Clicking on this link returns a 404 error from GitHub. Any chance that link will be live soon? It would be neat to be able to submit error corrections like this as PRs.

  • Hi Ben,

    There are several documentation errors and misleading descriptions that have survived for many years. You've pointed out a few in this forum. I rarely depend on the online documentation since the built-in descriptions are generally much better, and the online stuff is rarely ever corrected.

    Then there are functions that have no documentation at all, apart from just listing the function names. You will never encounter such a thing with Excel or DAX function documentation.

    Anyway, keep 'em coming.
