Hi,

following these instructions Sending Airtable Data to Microsoft Power BI & Power Query | Airtable Support I was able to link a single Airtable table to PowerBI and this works very well. However, I would like to link multiple tables from the same Base to PowerBI. Does anyone know how to solve this?

Cheers!

Welcome to the community, @Peter_Van_P!

Sorry, I don’t know the answer to your question because I’ve never used PowerBi nor M Query before (and I also don’t have a Windows computer).

I actually don’t know if we have too many people in these forums that have experience with those tools, but if we do, hopefully they will chime in below to help you out.

In the meantime, however, what I do know is that Make supports PowerBi, so it might be easier to do what you want to do with Make, since it’s a no-code/low-code integration & automation tool:

Hi Peter,

I think you need to create an additional TABLE_ID parameter in Power BI with info from the second table. I would name the parameter something different (TABLE_ID_2, for example) and make that change in the additional query in Power BI that you'll need for this table, too.

Assuming you're using the M query in the advanced editor, I'd find and replace "TABLE_ID" with "TABLE_ID_2".

Hope that helps,

Tim
