Retrieve data by referencing a table within my Power BI File

Hi team,


I have a working excel based power query which helps me retrieve list of all sharepoint url's, this is then saved as a table. This table thereafter is used as a reference to retrieve list of all contents from every sharepoint URL in the table. Now, I'm trying to use the same logic to retrieve data using Power BI. However, I do not know what is the expression to reference a table within PowerBI. Following is the manner in which I reference presently


Sites= Excel.CurrentWorkbook(){[Name="Projects"]}[Content]


Any ideas / suggestions will be helpful here.


Kind regards,





Currently, there's no Data Access function for Power BI file. You have to directly rertrieve the data from SharePoint List. For more details, please see: Accessing data functions.
