The query does not import all rows

I try to import a rather large file (50mb) into power query. It is a sort of .xml file (when I open it in XML.spy it gives me an eror but I can see the structure and when I open it in excel it opens as an .XML table) and when I try to import it not all rows are imported, when I open it in Excel all the rows will show. I've read somewhere that there is a problem with .xml files but I don't understand the exlanation to solve it.

Hi @Raf_Draulans ,

 

The solution provided in the documentation is to set option InferSheetDimensions to "true".

 

Add option InferSheetDimensions in the Advanced editor of Power Query Editor, like this:

        Excel.Workbook(File.Contents("C:\MyExcelFile.xlsx"), [DelayTypes = true, InferSheetDimensions = true])

 

 

If the problem is still not resolved, please provide detailed error information or the expected result you expect. Let me know immediately, looking forward to your reply.

It didn't work for me, I got this instead: Expression.Error: The Excel.Workbook parameter 'InferSheetDimensions' is only supported for Open XML Excel files (such as .xlsx), not for legacy Excel files (such as .xls).

The source file is an .xlsb file, I can't change that. 
The problem is the structured table inside, it does not show all the rows inside the structured table. I checked if the table covers the additional rows from the source, and it does. 

Amazing answer. First post I have read that gave me a solution to missing data in PQ.
