Hi @julrua 

 

You are reading from folders, right? Add a custom column, then use Excel.Workbook or Csv.Document (or anything else, depending on your files in the folder) to avoid help queries, combine the tables in the custom column

Not without 100% manually doing the combine operation yourself with manual code.

 

Those were introduced about 3 years ago to make the combining of files more robust and flexible. There is a full overview here.
