Loading data into a many-to-many entity

Hi everyone, I am having trouble loading data into many-to-many entities.  I have created various many-to-many relationships in my model, using both standard entities and custom entities.  After having done that I want to be able to load data into the relationship entity created by CDS.  Using Power Query I get to the "Map Entities" screen and I was expecting the relationship entity to appear in the "Destination entity" drop down box but I don't see any of the many-to-many tables.  Any suggestions?

Hi @jbul ,

Do you want to import data with relationship?
I've made a similar test and found that I could find entities with relationships when field mapping.

Please note that the custom entity's name is : "crb4c_...."8201.PNG


What's more, here are some docs about data integration for your reference:

Yes, I too can see the entities that have many-to-many relationships.  What I am not able to see is the junction table that is created by the CDS to house the relationship.  In my case I have 2 custom entities: Clinic and Employee, and there is a many-to-many relationship between them.  When the relationship is created CDS tells me that there is a relationship entity called cr9f8_employee_clinic.  But in the Power Query screen I don't see cr9f8_employee_clinic in the target entity drop down list.
