Connect to a Database with 2 separate Usernames/passwords. RRS feed

  • Question

  •  I am trying to Load data into PowerQuery from an Oracle database. The Database has 2 separate usernames/passwords for 2 different sets of Tables (Views).

     Currently I have been going into the connection properties and changing the password there, and then Loading that set of tables into the model. Then I go back to connection properties change password a second time and Load again. But then the 1st set of tables becomes disconnected ( errors etc..). this makes it difficult to go between the 2 Tables Views.

    Is there a way to duplicate this connection in a "My Connections" file or duplicate in another manner?

  • No, Power Query only stores one set of credentials for a given data source.

  • Maybe you can create 2 different TNSes so that you can show them as 2 different data sources?

    Or, if it's using the default port, you can specify it with & without port number to make them look like different sources. It's worth a try :)
