While Getting Data from Sql Server Column with Datatype "Image" is not Loaded into PowerBI

I am Getting Data from Sql Server to PowerBI. In a Table I am having a Column and its datatype is "Image" . When I load this table into PowerBI, I got all Columns in that table except this column where its Datatype is "Image".

 

Can anyone tell me Why that Column is not loaded into PowerBI.

Re: While Getting Data from Sql Server Column with Datatype "Image" is not Loaded into Pow

The Problem is solved for me.

 

While Getting Data from Sql Server instead of Clicking "Load", I selected "Edit" option. A new Power Query window is Opened. There, the Default Datatype of that image column is "Binary". I changed the Datatype of that Image Column from Binary to Text in Change Type and then Data category to "Image URL".

 

Now, the Image column is Loaded into Power BI.
