Load thousands of CSVs in a folder?

I have nearly 2000 csvs in one folder. I want to load them all into my PowerBI desktop and:

  • create some index based on all these tables 
  • generate some visualziations from these tables as well

However when I clicked the load from folder button, it gave me the following:

looks like it doesn't actually load the csv at all. Any way to force the software to load them all as 1k plus tables or can I just add a column which stores the real csv data and access the "nested column" inside this newly created column?

Hi @AbelNewton 

You can do it in three loads.
For each type of file, filter your table with (example Balance_Sheet), next click on two arrows in Content Column, this will expand all the files in to one table.

 

Repit this for all the file types.

Hi @AbelNewton 

Are you looking to combine some of this files, do all have the same structure?

@Mariusz To be honest, there are three kinds of structres: balance sheet, income statement and cash flow. I just want load them in bulk and deal with all of these later. Writing programs if needed is not a big issue for me.
