I have a table loaded to my data model containing IDs. I want use these IDs to filter another query connecting to a SQL table. I tried to merge the SQL query with the ID table but then the query does not get folded as it should (which is a problem as my SQL source has millions of rows). Any practice that makes sense thinking of performance in particular... Thxs much!!
I am working in Excel Power Pivot, my parameter list is generated from a table in the worksheet. The list generates well, and it displays correctly in the Query that is supposed to go out to SQL. Everything looks good, except, I am running into a Formula.Firewall error message complaining that my step 'Source' references other queries and I need to rebuild it.
For months, I have been trying to figure out a way to fold dynamic parameters back to SQL. This is the closest I have gotten. I can see how this should work. I can't get around the error message though.
Is there something I need to be aware of when connecting to the database? Has something changed in the software that prevents this from folding back as intended? Are there better ways today to accomplish this task?
