CSV Files - total size limit

Hello

 

I have 3 CSV files (180mo +3.4go + 3.4go) which are merged on PowerBi Desktop (I have a premium account).

 

I noticed that all calculations were wrong since the total space storage for those files passed over 6go.

Each CSV file contains financial data per year. For Example, in 2017, I should have a 101k€ turnover. PBI shows me 115k€ if I merge those 3 csv files.

 

If I create a specific PBI with one CSV file, I do have the correct figures.

The most ashtonishing is that I don't have any error message when I do import the data.

 

Any idea please ? Is it linked to my Ram Memory or my processor ?

Re: CSV Files - total size limit

Hi @Bryan75,

 

How did you combine the three tables? Merge queries or append queries? If they were merged, which option did you choose, inner join, lefter outer join or any other?

So, is the 101k€ turnover number some calculation that you are doing? Where does that number come from?

Re: CSV Files - total size limit

The 101k€ calculated is done with access.
I found this result too wkth powerbi desktop if I import one csv file which contains 2017's data.

I'm so desperate Greg_Deckler. Any suggestion would be appreciated.

Re: CSV Files - total size limit

@v-yulgu-msft I combined them with append. In query editor, I used table.combine().

 

FYI, the total size of my pbix is around 400mo. I don't understand if the file size limit explained in PBI tutorials concerns the source files (csv) or the pbix file. Could it be the problem ?
