Could you load data to your Power BI Desktop?

Maybe a screenshot could be helpful.

I launched the power BI

Get Data from SQL Server Database

All the tables are there in Navigator and the data is shown within the view

Cancel is the only button not protected

The Select Related Tables, Load, Edit .... are all protected

@Stephan I'm assuming you have the appropriate permissions on the SQL database? And I'm also assuming you have checked one of the boxes next to a table?

The buttons are "protected" by default and won't activate till you select a table...


If you are still having issues, can you add a screenshot?
