Query is either selecting too many fields Error

I'm using the Salesforce Object Connector, but receive the following error message when loading the data:

 

DataSource.Error: Query is either selecting too many fields or the filter conditions are too complicated.
Details:
List

 

I won't need all columns from the object so I want to reduce the number of columns selected.  I understand how to do this once the connection is established, but given the above error I dont have the option.  The Choose Coulmns button is grayed out.

 

Any ideas?

Hi @Charles,

In Query Editor of Power BI Desktop, please open Advanced Editor of your current query, then reduce columns in the code within Advanced Editor. There is an example for your reference.
