Hi, @mohapatra 

 

To use SAP HANA, you must have the SAP HANA ODBC driver installed on the local client computer for the Power BI Desktop's SAP HANA data connection to work properly. You can download the SAP HANA Client tools from SAP Development Tools, which contains the necessary ODBC driver. Or you can get it from the SAP Software Download Center.

 

For further information, please refer to Connect to SAP HANA databases in Power BI Desktop . Do pay attention to the considerations and limitations.

 

Best Regards

Allan

Hello Allan,

Thank you for the response.

 

I have already installed the SAP HANA ODBC driver, I am connecting SAP HANA to Tableau with the same ODBC driver connection and it is successful with Tableau, but not with Power BI. 

However, I configured the ODBC again, and tried to connect with Power BI, I got the below error.

 

Details: "ODBC: ERROR [IM002] [Microsoft] [ODBC Driver Manager] The data source name was not found and no default driver was specified."

 

Thank you, 

Mohapatra
