Connection vs Query in Excel data model

0 votes

What is the difference between a 'connection' and a 'query' as Excel defines it in their data model? For example, if I load a csv file from local, it stores that as a query (it shows a 'select *' as the query against the file). What then would be considered a connection and what's the difference between the two? The only thing I can think of is that a connection would not return data without specifying the table/query to use-- for example, a database connection where it has multiple tables, and possibly, connecting to another Excel file if it had more than one tab.

There are various ways to construct and load Power queries into your worksheet using Power Query. In the Query Options window, you can also select default query load parameters.

Select a cell of data in a spreadsheet to see if it was shaped by Power Query. If the Query context ribbon tab shows, the data was loaded from Power Query.

Selecting a cell in a query to reveal the Query tab

Select Data > Queries & Connections in Excel, and then the Queries tab. Locate the query in the list of queries, right-click it, and then select Load To. A dialogue window called Import Data opens. Select OK after deciding how you wish to import the data.
