Hi @Sean-OReilly ,

Do you mean scheduled refresh? A scheduled refresh refreshes the data in the semantic model at intervals you set, 8 times per day for Professional licenses and 48 times per day for Premium licenses.
Connect to Power BI from Business Central on-premises - Business Central | Microsoft Learn

Thanks for your help and response Gao.

I wasn't refering to scheduled refresh, I already have that up and running for my data.

I was referring to Live Connection / DirectQuery.

Is it possile to turn this on retrospectively to existing connections? 

I'm trying to avoid having to completely rebuild my dataset, tables & reports. 

Best regards
