Extreme speed problems when using power query RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a workbook where I have for example brought in 15 other CSV 's via PQ and merged them in various capacities with a master query. I have broken some out by dimensions for the pivot tables I need in power pivot as well but I often spend half my day waiting for a query to refresh or sometimes it will just flat out refuse to load even a simple 3 column 40 row table to the data model. 

    How can I speed this up? I have tried background refresh and quick load interchangeably, I am afraid to use buffer tables and I am just not sure how to speed up my master query. If this was just power pivot I would make a proper star schema etc but I need to display the results also as a table with all the data from these combined CSV's in addition to a power pivot table. 

    Any suggestions?

  • Are you using Table.Combine to concatenate the tables?
