Get data from URL that contains link that downloads CSV

Hi

I would like to pull the data from this URL 

https://aimis-simia.agr.gc.ca/rp/index-eng.cfm?action=rR&promptLevel=1&pdctc=&r=278&debugcodes=0&p_3...

 

The button will open/download a CSV, is there a way to directly bring this into Power BI without having to open and save to a local folder?

 

Thanks

Hi @SLR71 

you could use web connector in Power BI.

But it seems Power query doesn't support to download the files from web automatically.

or you could create a workflow to download the csv files automatically and connect to the folder where stores the csv files with Power BI.
