Hierarchy Slicer - Unexpected Error

Hi,

Today I opened a .PBIX file where I use the Hierarchy Slicer. The moment after the report was opened in PowerBI Desktop I got this message:

-------

Unexpected Error
An error occured while rendering the report.

"Send a Frown"

-------

 

After doing some investigation I concluded that the Hierarchy Slicer was the source of this error. If I delete the custom visual I do not get the error. Imediately after I download it again from Office Store (through PowerBI Desktop) and put my dimension column in it I get the error.

 

This has never been an issue before. Anybody else experience this?

All,

 

I have submitted a new version for approval that fixes the 'unexpected error' and after approval it will be available asap.

 

Sorry for the inconvenience.

 

Thanks, JP

Same here. Didn't seem to correspond to an update to either Power BI Desktop or the visual, so it's a mystery what caused the error.

 

Such a useful visual, this is very unfortunate.

Hi @ALL,

In the version 2.48.4792.721 64-bit (July 2017) of Power BI Desktop, I reproduce the scenario and get the same error message. I have reported it internally. 

Best Regards,
Angelia

Are your users having issues with the hierarchy slicer on published reports? I have one user that it seems to causing issues when he is using it.

Also just noticed that there doesn't seem to be a scroll in the slicer.  Hoping that is just on the desktop.  Seems OK in the published views.

Great!  Any idea how long that usually takes?
