Combine multiple files from SharePoint folder in Power BI
This is the scenario where I have a SharePoint site under site. I just want to connect some of the folders in order to retrieve my data in order to process my data.
And form the beautiful reports, dashboards.
Under the Shared Folder on DemoSite, I have multiple files. So I want to Combine all these files and retrieve data into a single file in Power BI.
Now we need to click Get Data and then more and in the search, we will just write SharePoint.
Otherwise, we need to search in different categories, so the very first option we have here is a SharePoint Folder we will select and we will click OK
We will now provide the SharePoint folder path which we already copied so you’ll paste here OK. https://enjoysharepointsky.sharepoint.com/sites/DemoSite/
Now in the below screen, it’s asking us Sharepoint Credentials. So in order to access files, we need to provide by selecting Microsoft account.
Once we are successfully connected to the Site we will click on Edit, it will open the query editor.
Now we need to filter our data, so we need to select the Name column and filter the files which are required.
Next step in order to combine files, we need to select Content (first column) and select the data and click OK.
After that, we will just give some meaningful names to our sheet data as Interest rates and click on Close & apply.
Once all the changes applied successfully, you will have your combined data as shown below. Now you can process your data the way you want.
