    Default Table edits not included in query refresh

    I've appended two Excel tables (A and B) using Power Query. So far so good. Table A is a connection only to another Excel file. Table B is in another sheet of the workbook where my query results get loaded.

    Table B has to be manually updated on occasion - it's a list of exceptions to append to the standard Table A. When I add rows to Table B, those rows do not show up when I refresh the queries. I've tried refreshing all together and each separately.

    Anyone have any ideas why my edits in Table B are not being picked up by any of my queries? It's driving me nuts and The Google hasn't been much help either.

    Please ignore my stupid question

    Such a simple mistake - I made changes to Table B, but didn't save the changes. Therefore, when the query updated, it was pulling in the last saved values from Table B, which did not include my edits. Once I saved the file, the edits were pulled into the query no problems. Makes me curious if perhaps it's not best practice to link to tables in the same worksheet as where the results will be loaded?
