Power BI Data connection

Hi all,

  I want solution on below scenario,

I will get weekly data each week from 1 week to current week....that can be refreshed weekly but the problem is previous week data can also be changed in refresh

but i want to freeze the previous week values once reported....I am thinking of doing incremental refresh as well but as i should find the changes as well that has been done in previous week as adjustments....if i do incremental refresh...changes that happened in previous week can not be reported....how can i achieve this....Kindly help.

Thanks

Hi!

 

In your case, would it work if you created two dataflows for two different destinations? One with the incremental refresh, which would keep the historical data fixed; and another that would always load the retroactive changes. That way you can use one to report the data and the other to verify the changes that have occurred. Would it work?

You have some ways to do the incremental load and keep the history depending on what your destination is (database, data warehouse, file, Power BI dataset...). This link shows how to do this using PowerQuery. https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/connect-data/incremental-refresh-configure
