Hi, @ericx 

If you  are trying to connect to SAP BW ,Power BI will requirest SAP .NET Connector 3.0 to be installed,

otherwise you  will have to use the NetWeaver RFC connection and select implementation 1.0.

Use the SAP Business Warehouse connector in Power BI Desktop 

 

 

If you  are trying to access SAP HANA datbase, 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.
