how to import one folder with different files

HI all, I need help please.  I was sent a folder with various files to import in POwer Bi. I'm new to this so unsure if it's me, or the files cannot be imported... The folder contains various types from .atx, .dbf, .prj .sbn .shx and .shp types, all for the same report, as they all have same name, just the type is different. Can anyone please help, I have no idea how to comine/ import all these. Thank you

Re: how to import one folder with different files

Hi @aurelszabo,

 

Did you unzip any file?

These extensions do not seem to be what Power BI can import.

 

Power BI usually opens file with following extensions:
1) .pbix (Power BI Desktop File)
2) .pbit (Power BI Template File)

3) .pbiviz (Power BI Visualization File)

 

Apart from this you can import files like .txt .xlsx .prn .xml .json from a folder.
