    Signed in and ready to connect.

  7. In Navigator, expand the Account you want to pull data from, which will display an Account Extract folder and a Project Extracts folder. Account Extract will contain the data extract of the most recent account level extract if you have proper access and have ran an account level data extract. Project Extracts will contain a listing of each project in the account you have access to, which you can then expand to see the relevant tables in that specific project's extracts if you have run a data extraction.

    Navigate to the desired data extraction.

  8. Once you navigate to the desired Account or Project extract, select the desired tables, and then either select Load to load the data or Transform Data to continue transforming the data in the Power Query editor.
