Incremental refresh options SAP BW connector

Hi all,

 

We've recently got access to the SAP BW Connector (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/desktop-sap-bw-connector), which gives us the ability to easily tap into SAP BW via Power BI and gives us a great amount of posibilities in analysis/BI.

 

However, we are running into some barriers. When connecting to a query with stock count data per day per article, the BW layer has a difficulty with calculating the aggregate. When setting time windows beyond 1 month, the server gets out of memory.

 

Is there a possibility to incremental refresh SAP BW data in Power BI? It's currently not supported by the Power BI Premium functionality. However, is there a workaround? Can we dynamically load a new week and store it in historical data which is not refreshed?

Hi @svenf ,

It seems that you want to achieve incremental refresh without Power BI Premium capacity.

Please refer to this similar requirement which using dax.

@ImkeF any workarounds about power query for this scenario?

Best Regards,

Cherry
