Importing seaborn package PowerBI error

Hello everyone,


I am currently working on a python coded project and have entered the final stage, visualization. I want to do this visualization through PowerBI. The packages I work with are Pandas, Numpy, Matplotlib and Seaborn. Whenever I try to import the seaborn package while entering my script in PowerBI, i get the following error:


Details: "ADO.NET: Python script error.
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "PythonScriptWrapper.PY", line 11, in <module>
import seaborn as sns
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'seaborn'


I have no difficulty importing the other packages whatsoever. Yes I did install the seaborn package with my anaconda prompt (pip install seaborn). Whenever I try to install this package i get the message: "Requirement already satisfied". My python home directory is redirected to my anaconda map so I think that can't be the problem either. Right now, im out of ideas so any help is greatly appreciated.


Thank you in advance!

@Anonymous : Thanks, for your post. I'm having the same issue. Did you ever figure out how to use it? I already tried the things suggested in the post. I have pandas and seaborn in my script and both packages are located in the same place, but seaborn is not found. 


If you have it working, please let me know, which versions you are using. Thanks a lot!

As far as I know seaborn is supported. This is most likely a version problem, you may refer to the discussion in this post:

@Anonymous , I am assuming python is working with pandas. And only seaborn is not working

Try this once.

pip install --upgrade --force-reinstall seaborn

Hey, I've tried what you said and the forced reinstall worked, but PowerBI still doesn't seem to find the seaborn package.

@Anonymous , I able to add import after running above.


I already have these

pip install --upgrade --force-reinstall matplotlib

pip install --upgrade --force-reinstall numpy
pip install --upgrade --force-reinstall pandas

pip install -c conda-forge mkl-service
conda activate


And I ran this

pip install --upgrade --force-reinstall seaborn
