Re: Integration with Excel files in folder that located on Sharepoint

Hi @Recoba88,

 

What you can do is if you go into SharePoint using Internet Explorer and go into the location where you files are stored, there should be an option to open using "Windows Explorer"

 

Then you can take the link in the Address Bar and then when in the Query Editor you can select your source as a Folder. And for the location put in the link you copied from the Address Bar.

 

Then if you are using Power BI Desktop January 2017 or later, they now have got a Combined Binaries experience, which will enable you to combine files with different formats, but with the same structure into one table.

Here are the details: Combine binaries in Power BI Desktop
