Power BI refresh query

Hi guys,

 

I'm importing data from excel online (onedrive) to powerbi. I have a few tabs there like "jan", "feb", "mar", "apr", etc... After importing to powerbi, I joing them in a table called 2017. The problem is when I refresh powerbi, we works on 2017 query first. Any idea how to change the order?

 

Thank you!

Re: Power BI refresh query

I don't understand the question (maybe there is a typo). Anyway, I don't Think it is possible to change the order of the queries. Plus it sounds like you are doing this the hard way. Read this article I wrote a couple of years ago. https://powerpivotpro.com/2015/07/consolidated-worksheets-with-power-query/

Re: Power BI refresh query

Hi Matt,

 

I'm using Excel Online from OneDrive and it doesnt accept PowerQuery/BI there. So I'm keep it simple for my client and doing all the transformations directly on PowerBI. I like your link, because it's exactly how I separate information from Excel, tough. But, everything is running smoothly, importing works freat, transformation and the reports.

 

My question is why I can't tell PowerBI to execute queries in an order? Like, I need to import the Excel data from Onedrive first and then make the merge. It looks like it's merging the information first and then querying the spreadsheet.

 

I'd like to maintain the Excel Online because the company works better in cloud.

 

Thank you,

Edgard.

Re: Power BI refresh query

Hi @efilipe,

 

From your description, you get data from the multiple worksheets from a Excel stored on Onedrive within Power BI desktop, and you merge those sheets to a new query, right?

 

As far as I know, all tables should start refresh at the same time when clicking refresh all. In your scenario, is there any specific issue result from the refresh order? If not, you need'd to worry about this.
