Power BI Report Builder - How direct queries works

Hi everyone,
I'm working on a Power BI Report Builder project.
I'm using a direct query to retrieve data from the database (Oracle).

I would like to use this query to populate 2 different tables (ex. TableA and TableB).
Each tables has different filters applied on (filters at table level).

How many times Power BI Report Builder will call the database when the user access to the report?

1 or 2?

Thanks in advance!
