Convert SQL Based table into a local table

I have a Query that creates a table from a SQL Server table. I wold like to sever this relationship and make the table a local table, that is a table that is not refreshed and that i can edit and add data right in PowerBI. How can i do this?


Thanks, thejav

Hi @thejav ,


You can load the data once and stop the refreshes.

After that, you can create another table with your data and append it to the SQL table:


Just the edit part that can be an issue, but perhaps you can create a new table and replace the values using merge functions.
