Problem uploading data rows to CDS 2.0 trough excel

I have to upload some data to CDS 2.0 that I already have prepared in excel.
I find myself with the problem that he does not let me upload more than 5000 records ...
Can someone tell me what this problem is? Thank you

Hi @Romansx,


This seems to be the current limitation when importing data from excel to CDS. Please try to post this in the PowerApps Ideas forum, so it might be considered to increase the number for future releases.

Thanks for reaching out Romansx 

Can you tell me the steps you are using to import. Also, do you see any errors?

No i found a workaround to upload data trough excel addin and understand that you can upload more records than 5000 effectively... Just when you "refresh" the connection it retrieves the last 5000 what does not mean that the entity have only 5000 rows...
