Refreshing One Power BI Dataset Table via SSMS

Nicky van Vroenhoven performs a small update:

A few weeks back I was working on a dataset at a client where I needed to import Excel files from a folder into said dataset. I filtered the files on a prefix and loaded around 30 files of the same structure to a table in my dataset. The Excel files are exports from a budgetting system (I know, right?) that have to be updated multiple times in the next coming weeks on an ad-hoc basis.

Rather than refreshing the entire dataset, there’s a better way, though there is a caveat.
