Azure Table Storage - Refresh Only Last 6 months

Hi all,


Sorry a bit new to BI.  I have about 6 years of data in Azure Table Storage.  Is there a way where I can only retrieve the last 6 months?  The entire refresh takes hours and I am looking to limit it.  Is there anything that can be added after Source or can this only be filtered aftered all the data has been downloaded?

 

let
Source = AzureStorage.Tables("https://xxxxx.net/"), 
xxxxx1 = Source{[Name="xxxxx"]}[Data]
in
#"xxxxx1"

 

Thank you

Hi @NiugeS,

 

You can use date type parameter to retrieve data from last 6 months in power bi desktop.

Please refer:https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-query/power-query-query-parameters#creating-a-parameter

Best Regards,

@NiugeS , Query parameter can help, but depend on source

@amitchandak Thank you for your response.  I'm just reading through this article.  Will this work using desktop?  I.e. if i'm not publishing it to the webapp?
