I am currently using the Power BI on a Free Trial where I am trying to convince my boss it is worth the subscription.
I have come across this error multiple times where I "get data" but it only comes up with this line in the middle and disables all functions except for the ESC key.
The whole point of my this is because I'm trying to showcase to my boss how flexible Power BI is, and how we could integrate data received from people without them having a local excel spreadsheet, as we are trying to have the data cloud-based.
This error occurs when:
- I move my local excel file into a different folder and attempt to relocate the Excel file via "get data"
- I attempt to "get data" via web (google spreadsheets)
Things I have done to try fix this:
- Clean uninstall and reinstall
- Recreating a whole new Power BI data report (works for relocating, but such a time-waster... Not worth it)
- Phoned a friend who uses Power BI (he doesn't know the fix either)
Does this error happen because I am on a Trial?
If so, this makes it a bit annoying as I would have to pay for the trial out of my pocket and then unsubscribe to resubscribe the payments to my company, including forms I have to fill out, etc for reimbursement.
