Unexpected error: Input string was not in a correct format.

Hi

 

Maybe somebody can help me?

 

It's the first time coming across this error in Power Bi. The table doesn't load into PBI Desktop and I get the error message below. I have tried soloutions suggusted here  The DB guys at my company say the problem lies with Power Bi as I can see the tables when I connect using SQL Workbench. Does anyone have a suggestion?

 

Thanking you in advance.

Re: Unexpected error: Input string was not in a correct format.

hi, @PoweredOut

I have tested on my side, but not reproduce the issue. And I also looked through a lot of documents, there is only one similar post and its solution get from Microsoft Support is same with you had tried.

https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Desktop/Input-string-was-not-in-a-correct-format-Unexpected-error-o...

You'd better create a support ticket in Power BI Support to get further help.
