refresh a excel power query at a particular time of day

Occasional Contributor

Hi,

 

i am sure i read somewhere that this could be done and i'm trying to implement it but cannot find any help online that relates to excel, its all done in power bi that i dont use.

 

basically, i want to refresh one of my power queries ( that gets data from the web ), at 10pm each night.

 

is this possible to do ???

 

many thanks for your help, steve reeves

To my knowledge nope, that doesn't work such way. Former time there were third party utilities which run at scheduled time as Windows task; open Excel file, refresh it and close. Perhaps they are still exists, not sure.

 

Other ways are related to SharePoint (on-premises solution) or Power BI service where data model related to published Excel file could be refreshed without opening it, but you don't use it.
