Can I automate appending files from a folder?

Can I automate the process of appending excel files in a folder on Power Bi? The requirement is to make a single connection to the folder from Power BI and whenever there is a refresh, Power Bi will automatically append the files contained in the folder. Is it possible?

Hi @Shri_mukherjee ,

You could get data from folder and transform the data in the Query Editor. If there are new file that be added to the folder, you could refresh Power BI. Then the new files will be shown in it and be transformed as what you did.
