Automatic append of Data to an exisiting dataset and its queries

Hello Community,


I have a report in Power-BI. I get my Data from a Rest API.


I transformed the data according to my needs in Power Query.

With every refresh, a query is exctracting new Data. The fresh Data are employee timesheets from the previous week. I can only extact the data for one week.


I want to create a function/parameter/something which automatically append this new weekly data to my existing timesheet data in the same format.


Would appreciate any help.

Are you using Combine & Transform to append the data from all your files?
