Hi, @Anonymous 

I suggest seeing some of the Youtube Videos. Most of them are less than 10 minutes, and it is very easy to follow.

You can search easily by typing, "Power BI get data from folder".

I hope it helps.

Hi, @Anonymous 

Please correct me if I wrongly understand your question.

I assume that each file name contains a kind of month-year indicator. And I also assume each file has the same table structure and saved in one folder.

In this case, you can extract all files from a folder into Power BI Desktop and you can use the month-year indicator to differentiate the information.
