How to display CSV raw data update at PBI report ?

Hi All

I have a SALES table , this sales table raw data file in CSV format ,  is store at sharepoint , this raw data file will auto update at sharepoint every day 3 Am.

Am i able to display the CSV file date at PBI report ? So that if sharepoint raw data file not update , it will display the last update date is not equal to today date. for example to day 27 Jan 2020 , and auto update date 20 Jan 2020 , mean i know it not update for last 7 days.

Hi @admin11 ,

 

 

  • Click 'Get data' from the ribbon
  • Select to get data From Folder/SharePoint Folder
  • Select your Folder/SharePoint Folder which has your target file(s)
  • Click 'Transform' button
  • Use the column filter for the 'Name' column which will have the filename for your desired file(s)
  • Remove all other columns except Date modified

 

 

Best Regards,

Hi @admin11 ,

 

If you are using Sharepoint folder, you will get to see a "Date modified" column which can be used to compare with the latest date.
