Error while attemting to load from Sharepoint list

Hi all,

I want load data to PBI from a SharePoint list.

Unfortunately I get the following error-message:


"DataSource.Error: We couldn't parse OData response result.  Error: A null value was found for the property named '<FieldName>', which has the expected type 'Collection(Edm.String)[Nullable=False]'. The expected type 'Collection(Edm.String)[Nullable=False]' does not allow null values.





While looking for a solution I have found the "ODataOmitValues.Null"-Option when dealing with OData-Feeds. Examples found are pointing to Azure so I think this works only for OData-Connectors.


Is there a way to handle this error (besides fiddling in SP-data or SP-setup) or use OData instead?

btw. OData as a connector is not working either, the sp-adress ist not recognised.


Open for any suggestions.
