Re: Unexpected error: Evaluation was canceled

@alan7lp  I do not have a real solution but this issue popped up again with vengance about 2 weeks ago.  The only thing that seemed to help (not resolve but at least reduce the time to refresh the query in the query editor to resolve the !) was to clear the cache.  I am not sure if there is any correlation to me doing that and the error resolving in less time but worth a try maybe?

 

1. Access the FILE ribbon from the PBI Desktop

2. Choose Options and settings > Options

3. Data Load > Clear Cache 

 

After this I generally close all PBIs and do a restart on my computer (probably overkill but just want to make sure).  Hope this provides some relief 😀

Re: Unexpected error: Evaluation was canceled

Hello there, 

 

I had facing the same issue.I solved this issue in that way: 
 1) Go to Data Source settings -> Data source in current file -> Clear all premissions;


 2) Go to Global permissions -> Clear all premissions;

 

 3) Connect again to the source of your data; 

 

4) Try to refresh all and go to transform data to check if the error still appear.

 

Let me know if that worked for you.

Re: Unexpected error: Evaluation was canceled

Hi @alan7lp , 

I had facing the same issue and I solved this issue in this way: 

  1. Go to Transform data;
  2. Go to Data Source settings -> Data source in current file -> Edit premissions;
  3. Edit Credentials and sign in as different user (the same user it was before...) and save and close;
  4. Try to refresh preview and check if the error still appear.

For me this helped.

Re: Unexpected error: Evaluation was canceled

Hello @Larsonski ,

 

I tried this before but it didn't work. It seems something changed with July's version because I tried again as you described and finally works! I have been working with the version of Feb-20 because anyone from March it wouldn´t refresh anymore.

 

Thanks a lot! 🙂 Happy that I will be able to use all the new features again!

Cheers!
