Is there a way to get this data into Power BI?

There are a bunch of tables on this webpage, but when I try to use Det Data > Web connector, I can't see to get it into Power BI.. I was able to scrape some other Internet Finance web pages... Can someone explain if this is protected somehow or why it's not working.. Thanks!

Not a definitive answer but its a very Javascript heavy site, running it though one of the web page simplification services results in a terms of use warning so I guess its set up to be as difficult as possible to scrape.

Yes I get this warning in PowerBI as well.... I'm also not looking to just get data once but on a continues basis, so sounds like a no go.. (There are other government sites that have this information as of yesterday, but Bloomberg is the only one that updates the info every 20 minutes throughout the day...) We also have a Bloomberg terminal but from what I read it's not easy to connect to it for Power BI (I'm not a developer so not looking to write applets, etc.) Plus with it being updated in real time was hoping to just scrape the tables and set-up a refresh... Thank You
