Create a new query from other table

Hello

 

I need to launch a query to another database with the data obtained in another table.

 

Example:

 

1) Fill with SQL the Data Table

2) Create a new Table with column customer

 

2019-12-07_09h50_52.png

 

Now I neeed to create a SQL query to another database and server with Customer in (COLUMN) the only idea the only idea I can think of is to pass it to ',' join. And then pass it as a parameter in an SQL IN

'9556','288'

 

Is there any other way?

 

Can you help me make a ',' and pass it by parameter?

 

I can't do a merge query since there is a lot of data

 

Thanks

Hi @sebasjuniper1,

 

I would recommend Power Query.

I think, if the Power Query Query Folding is not able to combine the data on Source Layer, there will be no better way.

Hi @mwegener 

 

Thanks for you reply

 

I don't understand why you tell me to use power query. What do you mean?

 

Thanks

 

Hi @sebasjuniper1 ,

 

In my opinion, it is better to use rudimentary power queries than to generate technically complex SQL queries.

But you have found your solution. I wish you success. 🙂

Hi! @mwegener 

 

Can you explain the better solution or a web when i can learn. 

 

I'm very interested to use "correctly" the power bi

 

Thanks

Hi @sebasjuniper1 ,

 

If you want to merge data from two data sources, create one query per data source and merge them using the dialog box.

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/desktop-shape-and-combine-data#combine-queries

 

Power Query should determine how the data could merge most efficiently and if necessary send filter values to the source.
