Hi @adityavighne ,

Please review the solution in the following treads and check whether it can resolve your problem.

Creating Connection in model stuck

In Power bi desktop, to improve the performance when connecting, please turn off options below in Options and Settings->Data load:  'Relationship","Time Intelligence","Backgroud data","parallel loading of tables".


Besides, please check if any blank column from excel(your data source) is loaded into Power bi.

It was because I was reading columns to infinity of a file, so if this happens to you also check the columns that do not have information, in order to delete them.


We suggest that you check this Excel file that needs to be loaded into Power BI and if it contains columns with [null] values, remove them and make sure that only the required columns are loaded.

Best Regards
