ETL Data Load

Hi, I read and was recommended to avoid an ETL data load for a date table I created.  Any tips on how to do this?  
All very new to me. 
Thank you Jennifer

Thanks for your reply, 

This was on a blog I read today on creating a Date Table

Date Dimension will be normally loaded once, and used many times after it. So it shouldn’t be part of your every night ETL or data load process.

@MMJen I don't think it is a big deal if it is a part of ETL, it is very few rows, you can surely add Date dimension directly in Power bI using DAX or Power Query. There are many posts on how to create one directly in Power BI but honestly, I don't see it is a big issue having Date dimension from backend source. 

 

I would  Kudos if my solution helped. 👉 If you can spend time posting the question, you can also make efforts to give Kudos whoever helped to solve your problem. It is a token of appreciation!
