I have a really simple request towards an API but I can't seem to get data on the screen. As you can see the root element is not at the start of the response I get from SoapUI:
<data contentType="application/xml; charset=utf-8" contentLength="86027"><![CDATA[<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<eExact xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="eExact-XML.xsd">
url = "...."
options = "...."
Source = Xml.Document(Web.Contents(url,options))
This results in an error:
DataFormat.Error: De verwerking van het xml-item is mislukt. De invoer is ongeldig of de bewerking wordt niet ondersteund. (Interne fout: Root element is missing.)
Any help is appreciated. Thank you very much!

First check if you could connect to xml api with Web connector or XML connector in Power BI.
You could also use Postman to test your xml web service.
There is an article regarding calling soap xml service in Power bi.
