Facebook : (#100)-The 'limit' parameter should not exceed 100

Hello,

 

I have a problem with connection to Facebook data.

I've followed the instructions:

https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Desktop/Error-on-FB-tutorial-Details-Facebook-100-The-limit-paramet...

but still have problems.

 

I've tried adding /posts?limit=100 but I receive only a part of data that is shown in the tutorial.

(https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/powerbi-desktop-tutorial-facebook-analytics/)

I don't have "From" and many other columns. What do I do wrong?

 

Second question.

This formula /posts?limit=100 is to connect to Posts.

What should I write to get Likes or Comments? /likes?limit=100? /comments?limit=100?

It doesn't work Smiley Sad

This helped fix my connection issue. Note that it's case sensitive. When I used Posts the query failed. But posts worked.

Hi @AnetaK,

 

First question: the tutorial used facebook API v2.2 while it's v2.8 in the Desktop now. So it could be normal that there isn't a "From" column. I didn't get one in my test neither. You could extend the object_link to get more columns.Facebook (100)The 'limit' parameter should not exceed 100 .jpg

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Second Question: the error message said "nonexisting field". In my test, I used "music" first, then I used "posts" and add "?limit=100", it worked. Please have a try.Facebook (100)The 'limit' parameter should not exceed 100 2.jpg
