Is there a way to copy data from a datasource and then delete the datasource while keeping the copy?



I need to load a data source (CSV file) from a Jenkins job. So far, so good. The content of the CSV file is never the same except from one column. The problem is that I need to keep the previous week's data in Power Query ( even the column with the values that doesn't change ).


( I don't know if I've well explained so here's a detail of what I want to do )


I load the file example.csv :



The next week I want to load the same file but it's content has changed with :



But I want to keep the content of the file from the precedent week, so my table would look like this : 



Is there a way to do this in Power Query ?

If I understand correctly, are you looking to essentially append the new CSV file to the old one? If so, you could import the new CSV file > Click on the old query > click on Append Queries > In the pop up window click the drop-down and select the new query > Disable Load from the new query by right clicking on the query. 


Hope this helps.
