How do I combine my excel sheets from 1 excel file and using SharePoint to open up the file.

For example, i have an excel file named as Bank.xlsx. In this file, i have 4 sheets (Sheet1 - Sheet 4) and this file is saved in my company sharepoint. From Powerbi, select sharepoint folder, point to Bank.xlsx. 

 

No. of InstallmentPayment Date Principal Amount  Outstanding DescriptionReference No.BankCurrency
111111111111111111111111

111

 

The column names for the 4 sheets are the same. However, i cant select 4 sheets at once i can only select one at a time. Any idea to solve this issue?

Hi @Javierphang ,

@amitchandak 's way is very helpful. It is better to combine all the data into one sheet instead of doing it on Power BI which might take many configurations.

Please have a try.

First, import data from excel, then click Transform data.

Then remove other columns except data column.

expand the Data column to the underlying structure

This action will combine the data from all sheets into one.

Thats it, all the data from multiple sheets are combined. You might need, however, to clean the data, remove duplicate headers, etc to have a clean combined table as a result.

Now, This can then be selected as a table
