Filter data by Table name

I have a table for the year 2020. I have a worksheet for each month. I created a report based out of Jan worksheet. Now I added "Feb" data to excel worksheet and when I import the file, it reads the worksheet as Feb. What i want to do is build report and use month to filter and do it for entire year. The coumns on each worksheet is the same. Can I combine the data in the report and need be can I filter by month?

Thanks

Bring them as seperate queries but append them as below.

Before appending them, make sure you have a date column which give you the month.

Can I add a column to table in BI and assign date value to it?

Ofcourse you can. There are tons of things we could do with Power BI.

 

The image shows a Query Editor window. Click on Add Columns and Custom Column. You could either type in ="JAN" or some arbitrary date for each month. Click on the 2nd arrow and change the data type to Date. Do these for each sheet before you append them.
