SharePoint List - Refresh causes List to Append


So that was the post I made, I mistakenly marked it as solved.


This is actually still happening.  When I do a refresh, it takes what is in the SharePoint list and just adds it into PowerBi along with the data from the previous refresh.


I am pulling straight from a SharePoint List, not a folder.  This is SharePoint Online.

I do have a column ID, and it is NOT duplicating that.

I can sort a certain way and find the duplicates, but for some reason the ID is different on the duplicates.

The query is just the standard SPO query, it asks for the main SP site, then gives me all the lists that are available.


One thing to mention is that earlier today when I did a FULL refresh of the whole dataset, my ClosedCaseHistory portion (the one that just doubles each time I do a refresh on it), was sitting at 19K rows.  When I did the full refresh, it dropped to the correct number of 6K rows.  I verified this in SP as well.


Not, just a bit ago, I did a "refresh data" just on that particluar one, and it did it again.

@lardo5150 ,


I've made a test but couldn't reproduce your issue, the row number is same with sharepoint online list on my side. If this issue persists, I would suggest you create a support ticket here for further analysis.
