How do I extract website data columns along with URL's?

Hi All,

 

I am trying to import web data in power BI desktop.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_universities_in_Canada

This link has some URL of some the universities but I am not sure how to extract them in Power BI along with URLPU.JPG

Hi @Kolumam

 

Please see attached file. and the Query Editor

Please note I am not extracting URLs but rather converting University Names to URL using Power Query

hi, @Kolumam

     After my research, I'm afraid it couldn't achieve in Power BI for now.

You may try to use other tools to collect and arrange these URL, Import it into Power BI separately.

And then merge them.

Hi Zubair,

 

I already figured out the solution but you did it in the most simple way. Thanks for that.

 

Another issue that I have in one of the other websites is I just have links in one page and when I click on that I have set of another links and when I click on those links I have json.

 

Is there any way to use Web source instead of Json and work with json data in the end?

I am not very learned on this topic

But see if this post is useful  you
