Incremental Load via BigQuery

Hi all,

 

I have a premium capacity and try to do an incremental load from Google BigQuery. 

 

In Power BI Desktop i have managed to:

1: Setup RangeStart and RangeEnd parameters.

2: Applied these to a datetime column. 

3: Verified that the parametrized filter is working in Power BI Desktop.

 

But when i try to update in the App then i get the an error message (see first pic).

 

I have two hypotheses:

--> There's a bug in the driver to Google BigQuery .

--> I need to tweak the datetime format via a Dax-Formula, such that BigQuery can work with it (see last pic). But i must admit, that i don't really know how to do that. Would i need to tinker with the "advanced editor"?

 

Best Regards,

Torben

Re: Incremental Load via BigQuery

I needed to use a "timestamp" column in Google BigQuery, not "datetime".

@T_Fischer ,

 

You may try to convert the data type from the source.

Re: Incremental Load via BigQuery

Yeah, i should try to experiment with that.

 

But to make sure i understand you correct, ill just outline the dataflow:

 

1: GBQ --> 2: Power BI Desktop --> 3: Power BI App (which then refreshes the entire dataset from GBQ)

 

The thing is, that in step 2 only datetime columns are accepted for the incremental load parameters: RangeStart and RangeEnd. So i not really sure how to experiment with the datatypes. But anyway, ill try to play around with it and see i can find a solution.
