@brett_walton,

What connector do you use to connect to the SharePoint list in Power BI Desktop, SharePoint List or OData feed? Do the problem SharePoint Lists contain special columns, for example, calculated columns?

I tired both O data, and Sharepoint List , the lists do not have calculated columns but have multi line text fields , hyper links ? Also one has more than 14K lines , is that an issue ?

@brett_walton,

That is not an issue. What URL do you use when using OData feed entry to connect to the list and what type of authentication do you  use? Please help to provide us a fiddler trace so that we can further troubleshoot the issue

Re: Getting data from on-prem sharepoint into Power BI Desktop

Thank you for the suggestion to use Fiddler, I am pretty sure my URL and credentials are correct as I can access other sub-pages of our corp (on prem) sharepoint site that have lists attached to them. I am not a sharepoint or windows person so I requested help with our admin to look into this, I will follow up with results.

 

thank you ..

I guess it would be worth noting when I clear all the source data permission settings the first time I access the root URL I get the error stating OData: The feed's metadata document appears to be invalid.

@brett_walton,

What version of SharePoint do you connect to? Do you use a custom OData implementation in SharePoint?

We use Sharepoint 2013 and I am told we do not have any custom Odata implementations.

 

I will publish the fiddler findings once I get them.

 

Thank you,
