Reference Another Query as Source Still Refreshing

Hello,

 

I might be over complicating this, but I have a large 4GB flat file that I am ingesting into Power BI. I then have another query that references the 4GB ingestion. I'd like the query referencing the 4GB ingested query to pull from cache as opposed to always requesting the 4GB again. I've tried removing the 4GB from refresh, but every time I change the other query it is still pulling in the file again.

Hi @ijmiller16,

 

I'm afraid that is how Power Query works. Creating an independent query won't help in your scenario. Maybe you can try table-buffer function. Please also refer to evaluation-model.

Did you find a way for the 4Gb source file to only be queried the once and for any downstream queries to reference the cached query, and therefore no need to query the original source file again?

Hi ijmiller16,
Uncheck these ones in Power Query on your big source table.
