Instructions for Refreshable Version

If you purchase the refreshable version, you will get two files. The Power BI report file (.PBIX) and an Excel workbook (.XLSX) with the Power Query queries that perform the web scraping. These queries were excluded from the Power BI report, to provide faster import time.

To review the queries, open the Excel workbook and launch Power Query Editor (from Data tab, Get Data).

To refresh the report, follow these steps:

Save the workbook Power BI Consulting Services.xlsx in your computer, and copy the path.

Open the workbook, and select Refresh All. When the refresh is done, save the file. If the refresh fails, please contact me at gilra@datachant.com. If you purchased the warranty, I will provide you a newer version of this file for a duration of 12 months since your purchase date.

Now, you will need to “rewire” the Power BI report to your local Excel workbook:

  1. Open the Power BI Report, and select Edit Queries. In the Queries pane select the Base Excel query.
  2. In Applied Steps, click on the settings icon in Source step.
  3. In the Excel dialog box, copy the path and filename of the Excel workbook you refreshed.
  4. Click OK, and then select Close & Apply in Home tab of Power Query Editor.

Your report will now include the latest consulting firms and their services from AppSource. You can now publish the report to PowerBI.com
