Automatically adding lines of data to legacy data set without overwriting

I want to set up Microsoft Flow to pull a report in excel format from my Outlook to Power BI and add the rows from that report to an existing data set originally uploaded into Power BI with the same column names as the generated report without overwriting it. The SQL query that generates the report and emails it only contains data from the previous 24 hours and I want to continue to compile that data into Power BI so we can see trends over time.


Is this possible?



Is there any possibility that you load the data to Power BI streaming dataset? Using streaming dataset, you can enable "Historic data analysis" option to store history data.
