    Duplicate query not updating

    Hi there,

    I have connected to SQL to get a table of around 1000 rows.

    I then used PowerQuery to duplicate the source data in to 10 queries and filtered each so I can have 10 tabs in Excel showing relevant data.

    However, when I make a change to the SQL database, only the initial table is updated.

    Is there a way in which all versions of the source data can be updated when a refresh is performed?

    Any help with this is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Greg

    They should all update if you refresh all ...

    What settings have you used for the 10 sub-queries?

    I also expected them to update but from testing only the initial table updates.

    I am unaware of applying any settings to the sub-queries.

    I right-clicked the main query -> Duplicate -> Renamed, then filtered a single column within the table.

    The above steps are the same for all 10 sub-queries.

    Right-click - properties - what settings have you there?

    There is no reason why they should not update if you've used the default settings.

    Can't really say anything more without seeing a sample.

    Re: Duplicate query not updating

    Yeah all sub-queries are default with the following options checked:

    - Enable background refresh
    - Refresh this connection on Refresh All

    Thanks to your affirmations, I have realised the mistake must have been due to the queries I have written rather than connection issues.
    The issue was due to changing the original query after copying an older version of it... DOH!!

    I appreciate your time and thanks for the help!

    Re: Duplicate query not updating

    Ah, yes - that would make a difference. I tend to use reference rather than Duplicate wherever possible.
