SQL Query in Power Query

Hi All

2 Questions:

1. I have an SQL query that starts with DROP Table when importing it via Power Query i get an error due to the drop table. 

2. I have 3 SQL queries that im importing via Power query, on a weekly basis i would usually update the week (ie, 01,02,03)  in the 3 queries. Is there a way in Power query that i can do this?

Thanks for the feedback in advance

Hi @Keithr197 

 

For question 1, it is not suggested to have DROP Table statement in the SQL query. When we import data via Power Query, we are usually to select data from the database rather than drop a table there. Please remove the DROP Table statement from the SQL query. 

 

For question 2, you can use the query parameter. Here is a video tutorial for your reference: Pass parameter to SQL Queries statement using Power BI | Microsoft Learn

Hi @Keithr197 ,

 You could look at using parameters as an option for #2
