Import only 1000 random rows



Im importing a table from azure with 40,000 rows. Then I merge with another table and almost the entire table has been merged. But.. once the merge was finish and a new column is added and then I push "close and apply" only 1000 random rows was charged. I tried refresh, I tried doing all again in a new report, different machines, I dont know... In fact the preview in query editor just finish at 1000 rows... it does not let me see anymore. 


This is a problem from July update? That's really weird. 


And when I append a 25,000 rows table with a 252 rows table, only shows in the report 252 rows... does July Update hate append and merge? 


Thanks for your help.
