Return step of a referenced query.

One doubt I had a while ago and wanted to confirm now.If I refer to a query, I just type '= NameQuery'.

Now, is it possible to refer to a step of the query, not the result of the query, as I exemplified?

Re: Return step of a referenced query.

Hi @PietroFarias ,

I still have a little confused about your question.

It seems that you want to refer to the steps in another query.

If so, I'm afraid that we cannot achieve that directly with typing '= NameQuery'.

By my research, there is no good solution for your requirement in power query.

As a workaround, you could delete the steps you don't need for reference in query 2 and then you could refer to the query 2 in query 1.

Maybe @ImkeF  will have other ideas.

Best  Regards,

Cherry

hi @v-piga-msft 

 

Exactly. I want to refer to the steps in another query. I still am learning about the possibilities of M. And I thought there was something similar to this.
About your suggestion, I do it sometimes.
Thanks.
