Pasted tables-a poor woman's display folder

One limitation of the tabular model is that display folders are not supported. Another limitation of the tabular model is that you cannot add simple aggregation measures (sum, average, etc) on the fly in pivot tables in Excel. Because all aggregations must be pre-defined in your model, the number of measures in your fact table quickly proliferates. Since neither Power View nor Excel support search in the field list for tabular models, it rapidly becomes hard to find measures in the field list when there are many different facts in your model, and the field list becomes unusable. What to do?
