Hi @Mateusz_Płonka ,


Do you want to limit the number of queries sent to the data source in a certain time? Maybe you can try the Value.WaitFor function. 

Error 429 too many request on Power Query 


Best Regards,

Hello, could you show me how I could implement it in the above code, and then I can handle the rest of the queries?


Unfortunately, my knowledge is not sufficient and I am unable to add the functions correctly
