As you can import the data from Text/CSV, the same way you can import the data from the text file. The reason is that Power BI provides the same option to import the CSV file as well as a text file. Let us understand this with the help of below steps.


Import Data From Text Using Power Query

Step 1: Get data from Text

To get data from Text you should have your data in a text file saved on your PC. Then, you can easily connect within a few clicks in Power BI-

Home  >  Get Data  >  Text/CSV

Text/CSV is the same option from where you can import both texts as well as CSV data into Power Query as shown below.


Step 2: Link the Text data into Power Query
