Re: DataFormat.Error: We cannot convert the specified value to the specified type.

@Evogelpohl The same column , at least in my custom tables (4), produce the error in multiple tables. Seems like an error on this column on all custom objects that contains it.

Re: DataFormat.Error: We cannot convert the specified value to the specified type.

I had a similar issue and tried to implement this fix to see what was going on. Ended up getting a firewall error. In the end I just removed as many columns as possible (ie just left with an Id and CreatedById) and my query worked.

 

Make sure you remove columns as soon as possible to force the query folding. Essentially you just don't want PBI to pull the table from Salesforce at all (seems most people are having this issue when accessing Salesforce).
