Performing same operation on multiple queries.

Suppose I've loaded 10 tables in Power Query Editor of Power BI Desktop. Each table consists of 1 million rows. I want to only load only 3000 rows from each table into the Power BI Desktop data model. How should I do It?

@ThisIsVS  Nope 🙂 , You have to do this one by one because the tables are in power query separately.

Hi @ThisIsVS 


If you are using SQL, you can add "select top 3000" to the beginning of the query. You can also follow the "Keep Top Rows" steps below on Power Query to set this restriction in Power Query.

@Anonymous Do I have to Repeat the "Keep Top Rows" step for all the tables?
