HI @Mahesh06 ,


I would suggest rather than hitting REFRESH button on the Power BI desktop report page, go to Power Query Editor and try to refresh your queries there. I am sure there is something in the background that is taking a lot of time.

To get a more specific answer, please share the M code from the Advanced Editor for your queries (both the transform sample file one and the one where the files are combined).
