Hi,

You can try this way,

A  -  Actual Table,  N  -  New Table,  AN  -  Actual + New Table

Step 1:  Connect to the Mysql database and retrieve the tables.

Step 2:  In the Power Query Editor page, go to View tab and click on query settings. In the space provided for SQL Statements, write CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS NEW_TABLE_NAME ( [same table definition] ) and then insert into new table (select * from actual table) . 

Step 3,4:  When the data is refreshed, the actual table is updated. The sql statements are run again for each refresh, so it would not create a new table and the old data still remains in the new table.

Step 5,6: Then append the new table to actual table to get your updated + old data.

Hope this helps you.
