Connect to a Sharepoint file in a dataflow

Hi all,

is there a more elegant/efficient way in a Dataflow to connect to a file hosted on a sharepoint folder than to use the Sharepoint Folder connection and then filter the files to only keep the one I want? 

Thx,

Ben

hi  @Benjamin_C 

You'd better use  the Sharepoint Folder connector in power bi dataflow to get it, it is the best way.
