Can I pass a value to SQL Transform data using Power Query?

HI

 

Don't see a way to do this and I know I can always filter after the fact, but is there a way to use my intial trigger to filter ( so like a parameter) on the SQL flow item 'Transform data using Power Query'.

The reason I ask is that the number of transactions been mashed up in the Transform flow item will increase over time and perhaps slow down or make the flow a bit unweildly, plus it's increasing resource usage againts a already heavilty interogated database

As per below screenshot I'm using 'Filter Array' afterwards instead and then using the output values from that further down my flow, this achieves the result I want, but I guess it would be much more efficient if I could use the trigger directly in Transform
