Hi @Koby 

It seems impossible,  M accessing data function, 

Access.Database(database as binary, optional options as nullable record) as table 

it has no options about query.

Compared to the Sql.Databese()

So, I think it is impossible to do that. But you can get table from ms access and transform to what you want.

@Koby , it can be done in power query if that is supported in the initial connection. Which I doubt.

You can open a power query can try to replace the table name with a query in parenthesis. I tried that in past for some other database and it did not work.
