Power BI videos | Power BI Part 3.2 - Import Multiple Text or Excel Files
Posted by Andrew Gould on 17 June 2019
This video explains how to import multiple text files or Excel files from a folder into a single table in Power BI. You'll learn how to use the Query Editor to append multiple separate queries. You'll see how to use the Get Data tool to import all the files in a folder in a single query. You'll also see how to filter a list of mixed files to import only those that you need for your report and then use the Query Editor to combine them.

Making a video bigger
You can increase the size of your video to make it fill the screen like this:
Play your video (the icons shown won't appear until you do), then click on the full screen icon which appears as shown at its bottom right-hand corner.
When you've finished viewing a video in full screen mode, just press the Esc key to return to normal view.
Improving the quality of a video
To improve the quality of a video, first click on the Settings icon:
Make sure you're playing your video so that the icons shown appear, then click on this gear icon at the bottom right-hand corner.
Choose to change the video quality:
Click on Quality as shown to bring up the submenu.
The higher the number you choose, the better will be your video quality (but the slower the connection speed):
Don't choose the HD option unless you have a fast enough connection speed to support it!
Is your Wise Owl speaking too slowly (or too quickly)? You can also use the Settings menu above to change your playback speed.
