Question about Odata feeds and merged libraries

  • 1.  Question about Odata feeds and merged libraries

    Posted Oct 30, 2019 09:31 AM
    I have 10 document libraries that are housed in one subsite on SharePoint. I have pulled these all into a Power BI report and then merged them into one table that I filter by a particular column. I have a lot of trouble refreshing this report (and also why should I have to even refresh it since it is a feed from SharePoint - but I seem to have to). All the doc libraries seem to refresh fine but I get a lot of different error messages on the merged table. Is anyone aware of how the odata feeds work and/or any information about merged libraries and any potential issues with that?

    Just looking for a general description of how odata feeds might be different than just putting an excel file into Power BI and any insights into merging several into one table.
