MERGE QUERY in DirectQuery mode.

How can we use the MERGE QUERY in DirectQuery mode.

I tried and get the error: This step result in a query that is not supported in DirectQuery mode.

If queries are from single database (I assume it is, as that's limitation of DirectQuery).

Can't you just Join/Union in query statement?

I think, i need to you join in query statement. Thanks for your answer

Hi @tanquoc0309,

 

As @Chihiro mentioned above, this is currently a limitation of DirectQuery. And the alternative option is using SQL Statement to join the queries in this scenario.

 

So could you accept the reply from @Chihiro as solution to close this thread? Smiley Happy
