    Angry Power Query takes ages to load JSON data from web

    Hey everyone, I'm pretty new to Power Query and am having some trouble when it comes to loading times. When I refresh all data in the workbook (which is just the queries) it takes 7 minutes (I got a little frustrated and actually timed it haha) for everything to load and for me to be able to continue working in Excel. For reference, as the picture below shows, I am pulling a lot of data. More specifically, 26 queries and a custom function that's used in all of them. I use that to load URLs that are on named ranges (that contain the JSON files that I pull data from) as the source for each query. Is there any way to make the queries load faster?

    If any of my descriptions are unclear, lmk and I'll clarify in the comments.

    Rule 03: Cross-posting Without Telling Us

    Your post does not comply with Rule 3 of our Forum RULES. Do not cross-post your question on multiple forums without telling us about your threads on other forums.

    Post a link to any other forums where you have asked the same question.

    Cross-posting is when you post the same question in other forums on the web. The last thing you want to do is waste people's time working on an issue you have already resolved elsewhere. We prefer that you not cross-post at all, but if you do (and it's unlikely to go unnoticed), you MUST provide a link (copy the url from the address bar in your browser) to the cross-post.

    Read this to understand why we ask you to do this.

    I have added the crosspost reference for you today. Please comply with this and all our rules in the future

    Also posted in reddit in addition to the crosspost mentioned above - I'm getting errors when posting links so I thought I would mention that here

    Because you don't have 10 posts here, you will need to type the link to Reddit instead of trying to copy and paste.
