Pivot Chart from Power Query on New Excel Sheet throws exception 0x800A03EC

I have an Excel 2016 workbook with a number of Power Queries off of a data table range. The output of several of those Power Queries are then used in Pivot Charts (each of which is located on its own sheet). This has been working fine for a month, but now I get an exception whenever I select one of the chart sheets.

 

I've created a minimum working example workbook from scratch (no relation to the workbook I've been using above, and with manually entered data) and I experience the same exception.

 

To create the minimum working example I typed the following data into the first sheet (called raw-data):

 

 col1col2col3
row1555
row2525
row3334
row4455
row5443
row6552
row7535
row8245

 

I labelled the range 'raw-data'!$A$1:$D$9 with the name "data", and then I selected Data > Get & Transform Data > From Table/Range and create a Power Query called "data-query-out" as follows:

 

let
Source = Excel.CurrentWorkbook(){[Name="data"]}[Content],
#"Changed Type" = Table.TransformColumnTypes(Source,{{"Column1", type text}, {"Column2", type any}, {"Column3", type any}, {"Column4", type any}}),
#"Transposed Table" = Table.Transpose(#"Changed Type"),
#"Promoted Headers" = Table.PromoteHeaders(#"Transposed Table", [PromoteAllScalars=true]),
#"Changed Type1" = Table.TransformColumnTypes(#"Promoted Headers",{{"row1", Int64.Type}, {"row2", Int64.Type}, {"row3", Int64.Type}, {"row4", Int64.Type}, {"row5", Int64.Type}, {"row6", Int64.Type}, {"row7", Int64.Type}, {"row8", Int64.Type}})
in
#"Changed Type1"

 

I named the worksheet that this Power Query's output is placed on "transformed-data". I then selected Insert > Pivot Chart and used "data-query-out" as the Table/Range input and chose for the Pivot Chart to be placed on a new worksheet. I named the Pivot Table sheet that is produced "pivot-data" and selected the checkboxes alongside each of the Pivot Chart Fields.

I then right clicked on the Pivot Chart and selected Move Chart, and selected New Chart, giving it the name "pivot-chart". I immediately get the following exception:

If I move the Pivot Chart back to the "pivot-data" sheet so that it isn't on a new worksheet then switching back and forth to that sheet doesn't throw an exception. Moving the chart back to its own sheet triggers the exception again.

 

Anyone got ideas as to what's going wrong, and how to fix the issue?

Re: Pivot Chart from Power Query on New Excel Sheet throws exception 0x800A03EC

Hi @PowerBIGuest,

I redo your steps, everything works fine without error. Please check your operation system is 32 bit while your excel is 64 bit? You can download my file(attchments) and check if it works fine on your computer.

Best Regards,

Re: Pivot Chart from Power Query on New Excel Sheet throws exception 0x800A03EC

Hi @v-huizhn-msft,

 

I'm using 64-bit Windows 10 and 64-bit Excel 2016.

 

 windows_10.jpg

 

excel_2016.JPG

 

When I download your Test.xlsx and open it I see five sheets (Sheet1, pivot-chart, Chart2, Chart3, transformed-data) with Chart3 selected. Excel opens the file in PROTECTED VIEW. Selecting the chart tabs in that mode triggers no exception as I move from one to the another. If I click "Enable Editing" to move out of PROTECTED VIEW I then get the exception 0x800A03C when I select any chart tab. Note, this is before External Data Connections are enabled.

If I enable External Connections, the exception continues to occur when selecting the chart tabs. As with my minimum working example, if I move a chart so that it isn't on its own sheet, the exception doesn't occur on that sheet when displaying the chart.

 

The exception details from selecting one chart tab in your test file are:

Hi @PowerBIGuest,

I totally undestand you, while I can't reproduce your scenario, I personally suggest you post it to the excel forum to get dedicated support.

Thanks,
