Data not Showing up

Hi Everyone - Hoping someone can help.


I have been having an issue lately with my data not showing up after I apply changes in the Queryt Editor.

The data will be there to start with, but if I "Enable Load" then decide later that I do in fact need that table to load in, so select Enable Load again, the data does not show up.  It loads in the Column names, but it appears as if the tables are empty. Has anyone else had an issue like this?  Am I missing something simple?



Thanks for the help!


Refreshing the data was the first thing that I did; that didn't work.

I think it has something to do with the preview features that I had enabled. I disabled them, then tried loading the data in and it worked.

I'm having the same issue.  Makes no sense.  I'm pulling from the exact SharePoint list in two reports.  The data in question shows up in one, but not the other.  The column is not summarized.


I'm also facing the same issue and tried everything possible.
All of a sudden I'm only getting 5 days of data where I'm querying for 30 days of data.
I even tried with 10 days but no luck.
Someone needs to look into this issue.

When creating a table, via power query editor , unpivoting, I could not show even a simple table or matrix. Data fields did not show.

Tried "refresh data" of the table: no effect. Removed any preview features and strat up Pbi again: no effect.


Then I removed the relationship between the tables , so the table was not connected at all to any other table: the data became available 😉 !. Then I ensured a correct relationship between my tables and everything worked out fine. (after 2 hours struggling...)

Try creating a random column to the table not loading and apply in power query.

Just try to force the refresh by going to the Data Mode (NOT the "Edit Queries" mode) and right clicking at the TABLE (NOT the general "Refresh" button at Home Menu) and choosing "Refresh" . That should do it.

I had the same issue. In the Data View (not in the 'Edit Queries') I right clicked and refreshed ('Refresh data') each table. Data showed up 🙂 Thanks for the suggestion!

In my case, user error, but this might help someone else - and remind me when it happens in the future and I forget how I sorted it and google the article again 🙂


The Values fields contained a number type column which PBI automatically chooses to "Sum" in the settings of the Values field.  Changing the number type column's setting to "Not Summarize" sorted the whole data display for me.

please can you suggest me answer for this i am also not getting data.

I would suggest disabling any preview features that you may have enabled. I'm not sure if it was one specific feature that was causing the issue, but when I disabled all of them, everything went back to normal.


Hope this helps!

Thank you




Just refresh the dataset, the data will appear again.

Similar problem: I have tables which show up perfectly in the "Data" area:


which then do not show up (at all) in the "Report" area:


rather desperate 😥

It happened to me, Power Bi Desktop was trying to connect to a database on the Gateway using local credentials.


In order to solve it, you have to define which credentials to use to connect to the database.








Make sure that the credentials being use or the MS Account being use has permissions to access the Database.

@cclark01 , i am facing the same problem, i tried with all the solutions mentioned here it still not working, can you please suggest me what to do 

Jack did you ever find a solution for the data that wouldn't appear correclty in Power BI? I'm having same problem and none of the fixes work

I have had the same problem. BI is loading data in the table but you see empty row. When you filter the empty rows in your column out you will see data. Bi is loading your table with the empty rows in excel. I don't know why.

I deleted all the whole empty rows in my excel table (not the data) from top to bottom. Then I actualised my table and then Bi shows me the data in my query editor!

So you can filter your column in the query editor or you delete the empty rows.


Try this: Here in the picture: Deleting all rows after my data

Or try this: Deselect the empty rows in the column filter.


I find this out and it works.
