Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Appending data to a query, part of Learning Microsoft Power BI Desktop (2016).
- [Voiceover] At the end of the last movie…we had created a .pbix file and if you are…working along with me and you saved it,…that is the file that you should open to start here.…I suggested that you name it Append.…Now what I'd like to do, is I'd like to create…one long query that includes all of this information.…One set of data, because these are…the results that are coming from…all of these different continents.…I don't want to have them separate,…I want to have them together.…The more I work with business intelligence,…the more I realize that having large sets of data…is very helpful and that the way…many people have spent their time in the past…taking, for example, a set of all the countries in the world…and separating them into different tabs in an Excel Workbook…is the wrong thing to do because then later…it makes that data harder to be able to work with.…
If they're all countries, keep them all together.…In the same way I've seen business settings…where each time there's a brand new year…there's a new set of spreadsheets that are created…
