Get data from RDATA file



In our company we have several R scripts automated that generate Rdata files as results.

I would like to use these results as dataset in power BI ... 


I couldn't find a way to open Rdata file ??? 


I can see that i can use R Script but i don't want to re generate the Rdata (very long calculation) ... do you know how to directly read the Rdata file as a table? ... to use it as a dataset in powerbi desktop (and manipulate it in query editor) 


thanks in advance for your help

Can't you just load it in your r script step?

Hi @LY18 


As explained in the below article you can use load() function


Use R in Power Query Editor


I don't ting that there is a connector to connect directly to rdata file.
