Learn How to Split Queries In Power Query

As explained in the above example, we have generated a conditional column for the given query. If we want to split this query into two, Power Query will help us in doing so.

How to Split Queries In Power Query

The user will be able to mark a set of consequent steps, starting at the first one, and split the query so the marked steps become a new query and the rest become a query referencing the first one as a source. This is useful if the first steps of a query are actually required for a few other queries.

Step 1: Click on Extract Previous option

To split the queries, right click on the Applied Step that you want to split from the query as shown below.
