Is there a list of the "Special Characters" Power BI cannot accept in a SharePoint list?

I can't seem to get to first base accessing my SharePoint 2010 lists.  It's been suggested "special characters" are the problem. Before I re-engineer my lists, is there a list of the special characters to avoid using?  Thanks in advance.

Hi @Doverwood ,


What's your issue? Can't access SharePoint 2010 lists or miss some data or some lines show blank fields? It's hard to analyze the problem based on your description.
