Data showing file name not what’s inside the files

Hi, 

I'm new to power BI and am making a power BI report, I have imported data from a MS Sharepoint folder (so it's in the cloud for my company and not local) and picked out the specific excel sheet I want the data from, however when getting the data into my power bi report, the data seems to be the tab names in the excel sheet and not what's actually in the tab which is the data I need. Does this make sense and can anyone help?! I can provide further info if needed.

Many thanks.

each step create a table, you can refernece the table as many times as you want.

Here are reference #"Imported Excel Workbook" twice.

    #"Imported Excel Workbook" = Excel.Workbook(#"test xlsx"),
    Tableau2_Table = #"Imported Excel Workbook"{[Item="Tableau2",Kind="Table"]}[Data],
    Custom1 = #"Imported Excel Workbook"{[Item="Tableau1",Kind="Table"]}[Data]

Il table have the same columns, yiu can the append them.

Hi @Aaronrawlinson9 ,

Thank you so much! I can see the real table now, how do i do this for every tab? Once I press drill down on one of them it shows the correct table but I can't seem to accept and go back sort of thing.
