Save query output as variable for new query (URL)

Hi guys,

 

I'm fairly new to Power BI and a total rookie to Power Query.

I've recently been building a report that gets data through SharePoint Online, and to my dismay the limit for the query is 5000 items or rows.

 

Using Web Query I can get the data + the link for the remainder of the data.

 

My question is: How can I save this href as a variable that I can use as a second query?

 

URL to get the rest of the dataURL to get the rest of the data

Hi @eeew00 

 

If you can only see 5000 rows in Query Editor it might be because QE will only load a data preview, once you load the data to the model ( Close & Apply ) it should load all the data.

 

Where did you get the 5000 rows limit from?

Hi @Mariusz !

 

Thanks for your reply. 

I believe I've mixed things up a bit, when querying through the browser, there's a limit for 5000, so I assumed it would be the same in Power Query (which it is when using the Web query), but switching to the SP-List online query, I am able to receive 5k+ rows.

 

Thanks for clearing things up for me 😄
