Connect a workbook that changes name to a Power BI dataflow

Hello everyone,

 

I have a spreadsheet that is being located in a specific folder in Sharepoint. The content of the spreadsheet is every year exactly the same, however every year this spreadsheet is being re-created and saved with the same name but with different Financial year at the end. 

What I have to do somehow is to create a dataflow using the spreadsheet but I want the dataflow every year to get the data from the new spreadsheet with the new financial year. 

 

Has anyone tried to do something similar?

 

Many Thanks

You could parse the year out of the filename to create a year column, and then use the Table.Max function to keep only the latest record/row (then extract the contents of that to get your updated data).

This is easy to do when you use the SharePoint Folder connector (which is generally recommended anyway) rather than any file connector,.

 

Buit - if this only changes once a year then you are probably wasting your time trying to automate this,.
