How to bypass 3000 cells limit?

I am trying to "enter data" in powerBI that is a large table. I am doing this to avoid a connection and avoid refreshing data. I can copy the data from a csv file but when i paste into enter data i get an error with 3000 cell limit.

 

I then came across this tip to bypass: https://www.reddit.com/r/PowerBI/comments/mw9qji/bypassing_power_queries_enter_data_3000_row_limit/

 

But I am unable to follow the instructions and its not very clear. Can someone enlighten me on if this would actually bypass the 3000 cell limit? If so, can you provide better instructions?

 

Thanks!

1. Import your csv into PQ

2. Insert a new step in this table

= Text.From( Binary.Compress( Binary.FromText( Text.From( Json.FromValue( Source ) ), BinaryEncoding.Base64 ), Compression.GZip ) )

3. Insert a new blank Query by right clicking the left pane

Put following formula

= Json.Document( Text.FromBinary( Binary.Decompress( Binary.FromText( "MASSIVE_WALL_OF_TEXT_GOES_HERE" ), Compression.GZip ) ) )

4. Copy the output of step2 and paste  into MASSIVE_WALL_OF_TEXT_GOES_HERE in above query

5. Click To Table under Transform

6. Click double edged arrow and extract all fields

I have prepared one sample on the basis of this and uploaded whch will help you to understand to https://1drv.ms/x/s!Akd5y6ruJhvhuXwZMrH7laaLcVFj?e=ie2m5d
