HELP: How to Paste Value a Data Table to a Different PowerBI File?

Hi,

I have a PowerBI sourced from SQL server and I want to paste value the such data into a different PowerBI file.

Because the SQL access is granted on a one time basis, and I cannot edit the query because it would run into an error when I try to open the table to Transform Data.

Sorry if it is a basic question, but I search everywhere but could not find an answer? and as the Table is 5mil+ row, I cannot copy paste it directly.

Thank you in advance

Unfortunately, because the Source of the Query is directly to the SQL access, if I open the file in Edit Query Mode, It automatically run into an error, so I could not create a query on top of that.

I ended up divided the file into copy able size to copy the raw data out to another storable format.

Thanks for your reply.

Hi @nhutruong ,

 

No need to enter the PowerQuery Editor. The sample is DQ mode.

We just need to select the exported results first and then run the query. Here FactInternetSales is the table name.

Hi @nhutruong ,

 

Try constructing a query based on the table and then exporting the query results using external tools.
