Data Update in Dataverse from Dataflow

Hi Team,

 

I have a simple Dataflow, which gets data from Azure SQL table into Dataverse table. I have made automatic refresh for everyday. So My Dataflow will run on everyday and gets the data from AzureSQL into Dataverse.

 

Problem: There are few rows in Azure SQL which will be updated on daily basis, as my dataflow runs on every day, the records needs to be updated in my Dataverse table, But everytime my dataflow runs, it's adding new records,which is causing duplicates.

 

Is there any way where we can apply logic/transformation in dataflows using powerquery to check if record exisits in dataverse before importing the data?

 

Thanks in advance.

@slingy  yeah that was the problem with Key, I created a key with unique column which will compare the data when syncing back to datverse. And it is working as expected after creating key.
