Very helpful. but in excel 2016, the below option of "Parallel loading of tables" option is removed. And process requires, the refresh of tables need to be in parallel. Else it take more than 5 times it was taking me earlier. Is there any option of enable the option. Thanks you in advance.
I am unchecking the option Enable Parrallel loading of tables but this is not working and both my tables are loading in parrallel. My data source is two tables from Sql Server.
I've researched this a ton but can't find the answer to these questions:
I THINK the load order is only based on the order of the query list when this parallel load is disabled. But, I am not sure how query dependencies play into that.
Besides this thread, here were a couple other links I found useful:
https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Desktop/Query-Dependencies/td-p/28306 (Makes good points about how caching order effects what is "current" when the loads happen)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YfdypVSYb9c (Shows how to introduce delays to manually force the order)
In my situation I have a table which is a join of two predecessor tables. I have an index column which is created after a sort which is done after the join. If the refresh of this table hits the cached version of one or both of the predecessor tables then the index value will be incorrect. This creates some odd behavior in the report. It usually resolves itself with multiple refreshes but makes the data feel very unreliable. It would be great to get some more clarity on these questions!
