Power BI Sharepoint Data Feed

Currently I am getting 3 types of data in 3 different folder in Sharepoint Library of O365.

 

1. Sales

2. Management result

3. Share Information

 

This 3 type of data set is different, and I made seperate query for each of this folders to organize the data. And number of file changes periodically, so keeping this seperated is mandatory for me. Till now, I am manually feeding this to BI and publishing, which I am trying to automate by linking BI directly to the sharepoint. However, I cant find any option to segregate the folders in Sharepoint get data option. As BI takes Sharepoint Site URL and whenever I put this in BI, it automatically pulls all the file to the system. This is a problem for me as I need to point BI to specific folders.

 

Can someone help on this?

Hi @rajibmahmud,

As BI takes Sharepoint Site URL and whenever I put this in BI, it automatically pulls all the file to the system. This is a problem for me as I need to point BI to specific folders. 

If I understand you correctly, you should be able to simply filter on the Folder Path column in Query Editor to load files from a specifice folder in this scenario. Smiley Happy

  1. Click the down arrow ( Down arrow ) of the Folder Path column.
  2. Click Text Filters, and click Contains.
  3. Enter the folder name(i.e. Management result) you want to load files from.
