Survey results from "Microsoft Forms" or raw data from Excel to OneLake

What is the most effective method for importing (automatically) survey results from "Microsoft Forms" or raw data from Excel files ( made by users in the organization) into "OneLake"? The data is currently stored as files in various groups within SharePoint and I would like to use the surveys or the raw Excel data for creating multiple reports for multiple audiences in Power BI.

Hi @CBO2404 ,

You can follow the steps below to get it:

  • In Power BI Desktop, select Get Data > Web.
  • In the From Web dialog box, paste the URL of your Microsoft Forms survey. You can find the URL by opening the survey in a browser and copying the link from the address bar. The URL should look something like this:
  • Click OK and sign in with your Microsoft account credentials.
  • In the Navigator pane, select the table that contains the survey responses. You can preview the data in the right pane.
  • Click Load to import the data into Power BI Desktop.
