Append and merge tables in R How?

I have on a server PDF-documents. I upload them one by one from my desktop in Power Bi under New Source to power query. For every single PDF-document I get three tables. My intention:

Step 1:
How do I automatically upload these PDF- documents with a link to SQL-Server - and how do I automatically extract the PDF-documents into tables? All in R-Script.

Step 2:
I want to append all three tables into R-Script in a new master table. So far I have solved it in this way see link. Step 2 should also be done for the other PDF-documents.

Step 3:
The tables of the individual PDF-documents should now be further merged into the master table in R-Script as in the following link.
The goal is to use R-Script to create a master table from several PDF documents as in the picture
Can anyone help me

Hi @Powerbiuser77 ,


Based on my research, it is not supported yet to merget visuals in power bicurrently. You can come up a new idea about that you can vote it up to make this feature coming sooner.

Hi Frank,

I do not want to merge visuals. Step 1 and 2 are tables that I extract from PDF documents. I want to append and merge tables in R script.


The example in the link shows that it is possible to merge tables with R-script.

Primarily I want to realize Step 2 and 3 together in an R code
Thanks for your support


Hallo everybody,


with the help of this link I have solved step 2 and 3. 
For step 2 I used the following R code:
cbind(df1, df2)
and for step 3, I have used the following R code:
rbind(df1, df2)
Can anyone confirm that everything was right up to here.
My main goal is to continue to do steps 1 through 3 in a R code.
Can someone help?
