Hey everyone, I'm pretty new to Power Query and am having some trouble when it comes to loading times. When I refresh all data in the workbook (which is just the queries) it takes 7 minutes (I got a little frustrated and actually timed it haha) for everything to load and for me to be able to continue working in Excel. For reference, as the picture below shows, I am pulling a lot of data. More specifically, 26 queries and a custom function that's used in all of them. I use that to load URLs that are on named ranges (that contain the JSON files that I pull data from) as the source for each query. Is there any way to make the queries load faster?
