I need to scrape data from a webpage but then i also need to keep historical data, it gets overwritten on the website. Has anyone been able to figure out how to do this?
1) pull data from a web page
2) store and not overwrite when new data comes in?

bumping this to see if anyone has any thoughts on this?
Do you mean scraping with the "Get data" in Power BI?
Please check the workarounds mentioned in this thread, as currently, there is no direct way to keep historical data when refreshing data.
Someone has submitted this idea to Microsoft, you could click to vote it up. And this topic is under review, it might be added to future release.
