GIS Table Shape Field

I loaded a GIS table into BI. It's a table for a line feature class (pipes). The shape length field is a binary data type. If I were to look at this same table in ArcGIS, the shape length field would be the length of the line. But in Power BI, the value in every row is "binary". How can I transform this column to give me the length of the line instead of "binary".    

 

My goal is to sum the line (pipe) lengths of this field.

Could you share more details about "shape length field" and post some sample data?
