  • Hi Raoul,

    Actually, you have only below two options for filtering the data before you import it. First, you can select specific columns rather than importing every column from the source table. Second, you can apply a filter to a column to select the row values to include in the import. By applying these filtering options, you can eliminate unnecessary overhead in your workbook, reducing both the file size of the workbook and the amount of time necessary to refresh and recalculate the workbook.
