Custom SQL instead of table or view

Hello,


Can you tell me how do I write the custom sql/ derived table to join to existing tables from the databases? I would like to be able to use derived table. The only options I see is I can use tables/views from the database. Thank you in advance.

@PowerBIlearner When you connect to the SQL Server you can expand the "Advanced options" and input a SQL query to pull in the data that you want.

Re: Custom SQL instead of table or view

Hi @PowerBIlearner,

 

When we connect to SQL Server data source, we can use derived tables in the T-sql query, you can refer to the sample below:
