Hi @LOAM ,


From your error message, you do not have enough memory on your system for Power BI to be able to work correctly.

You may need to install additional memory onto your system where you have Power BI Desktop installed, or if you have another PC or laptop with additional memory to use that.

And you can try to remove some of the filters and try again to see if you can refresh it successfully.


You can reference the following link.
