Loading multiple tables from a single excel workbook; then, creating separate queries for data model

Hi, All.


I am loading an Excel workbook with several tables in it (see screenshot). is there an elegant way to turn each table (or several tables that I filter) into separate queries for the data model?


I can create a separate query per table, manually - but, since I have multiple tables, I wonder if there is an automated way to do so.


Any help is appreciated!

Hi @datasetleo 

I'm afraid there is no auto way like just one step could tramsform it to many tables.

I test with method below:

add an index column in original table from 1,

create a function like the following:


(Sheetindex as number) =>
        Source = #"2 26 xlsx",
        #"Filtered Rows" = Table.SelectRows(Source, each ([Index] = Sheetindex)),
        #"Removed Other Columns" = Table.SelectColumns(#"Filtered Rows",{"Data"})
        #"Removed Other Columns"

Then enter 1 or 2,3,4,5 to the "Parameter", invoke, i can get single query of each sheet data, then expand data and promote column headers.
