Files from folder in OneDrive, then MERGE

Hi, my Power Query data is taking an hour to refresh. I read somewhere that a solution is to bring the data in connecting to Folder.

My folder is in OneDrive for business.

The problem is that if I bring the data in from a folder, it combines (looks like append) the data. I need it to MERGE. Like a lookup.

Any ideas on how this can be done?

 

Any other ideas on how to bring data in from OneDrive, so that it does not take more than an hour to refresh?  I need to Merge multiple tables.  And I think that is where Power Query gets stuck.

 

Thank you

Vicky

Hi, @vicros 

When a table has the same table structure, it appends data. You might try to load the list of files and merge the data with PowerQuery.
