Hi there,

I’m trying to sync Airtable base/view with an Microsoft Excel via the M query template bellow and it almost return what I want. The only problem is that it don’t include the empty cells in the second record even if the first record in the table is completely filled out. How can I modify the Query to allow for empty cells in a table?

let Pagination = List.Skip(List.Generate( () => [Last_Key = “init”, Counter=0],

each [Last_Key] <> null,

each [

Last_Key = try if [Counter]<1 then “”


 [WebCall][Value][offset] otherwise null,

WebCall = try if [Counter]<1







Counter = [Counter]+1


each [WebCall]


#“Converted to Table” = Table.FromList(

Pagination, Splitter.SplitByNothing(), null, null, ExtraValues.Error),

#“Expanded Column1” = Table.ExpandRecordColumn(

#“Converted to Table”, “Column1”, {“Value”}, {“Column1.Value”}),

#“Expanded Column1.Value” = Table.ExpandRecordColumn(

#“Expanded Column1”, “Column1.Value”, {“records”}, {“Column1.Value.records”}),

#“Expanded Column1.Value.records” = Table.ExpandListColumn(

#“Expanded Column1.Value”, “Column1.Value.records”),

#“Expanded Column1.Value.records1” = Table.ExpandRecordColumn(

#“Expanded Column1.Value.records”, “Column1.Value.records”,

{“id”, “fields”, “createdTime”},

{“”, “Column1.Value.records.fields”, “Column1.Value.records.createdTime”}),

#“Renamed Columns” = Table.RenameColumns(

#“Expanded Column1.Value.records1”,{{“”, “_airtableRecordId”},

{“Column1.Value.records.createdTime”, “_airtableRecordCreatedAt”},

{“Column1.Value.records.fields”, “_airtableRecordFields”}}),

#“Reordered Columns” = Table.ReorderColumns(

#“Renamed Columns”,

{“_airtableRecordId”, “_airtableRecordCreatedAt”, “_airtableRecordFields”}),

#“Expanded Record Fields” = Table.ExpandRecordColumn(

#“Reordered Columns”, “_airtableRecordFields”,

Record.FieldNames(#“Reordered Columns”{0}[_airtableRecordFields]),

Record.FieldNames(#“Reordered Columns”{0}[_airtableRecordFields]))


#“Expanded Record Fields”
