Data Load in Desktop

Hi Community,

 

I've around 15 millions of records in Sql Server table (Data Source) and I'm using Power BI Desktop to import data.  I would like to import only new records. Instead of loading the refreshing the entire data everyday is there anything that i can load only current month data. I'm using Power BI Pro version.

 

Thanks,

Paruch

Hi @paruchuri447 

 

There is something called incremental refresh which only updates changes or new data however this is only available to premium members. I would love this too.

 

The only way I have found around it is to have each week/month in a new table and then refresh only that table so it's much quicker. However, if you add a column you need to do it in all the table and not just one. It's very messy.

 

The only other way is to create a summary table first or cut out as much non-essential data while running the query editor.

 

I hope this helps, if it has please mark it as the solution 🙂
