Import data storage



I am trying to find a way to imported data to an appended data so that when the import refreshes, the appended table keeps growing. 


For example, 

there are two data tables, totalData and salesforceDate

the initial totalData data table looks like this:

StoreItem Price 
AChair 100
ALamp 60


SalesforceData (Day 1)

StoreItem Price 


saleforceData (Day 2)

StoreItem Price 


If I set salesforceData to refresh everyday, 

My goal is so that at the end of Day 2, totalData (which appends salesforceData)  has data for stores A,B, and C (days 1 and 2). However, I am currently only getting data for stores A and C after day 2 as a result of the refresh deleting old data. Is there a way to work around this?

I need this because salesforce is only able to load reports of 2000 rows. Thus I need to pull data daily but do not have the time to append a new table every day. 


Thank you. Appreciate any solution to this problem.

Hi @ioper ,


There is a workaround you can considerate, following the steps below.


1.Save these data tables in OneDrive for Business, create a new column named "Day number" in totalData table to storage the days in later step 3.


2.Connect to the excel file totalData located in OneDrive for Business using Web connector, see more detail: Use OneDrive for Business links in Power BI Desktop.


3.Once there are new SalesforceData, you can append the new data into the totalData table by doing copy and post.


4.Click Refresh button to get the latest data.

Thank you for your help. @v-xicai 


So does the salesforce data have to be copy and posted every day manually? Also, just for clarification, is  the salesforce data being appended on one drive?

Hi @ioper ,


It is a clumsy workaround, right?Smiley Embarassed You may need copy and poste every day manually. For the SalesforceData, you may needn't to upload it to OneDrive for Business.


Best Regards,
