Problem Merging Queries: Formula.Firewall: Query references other queries ...

I continuously get this message below.  And intermitently.  Sometimes it works, sometimes it breaks.  I am merging a query built from an excel file that lives on SharePoint with a query built from an online list on SharePoint.

 

Formula.Firewall: Query references other queries or steps and so may not directly access a data source.  Please rebuild this data combination.

Image result for references other queries or steps, so it may not directly access a data source. Please rebuild this data combination.

The issue appears to be in the permission settings. The SharePoint Online datasource was set to "Organizational" Privacy Levels. The Excel file was set to "None" Privacy Levels. By setting both to "Organizational" the queries built successfully.Issue.png

Actually, I ended up hitting the issue again somewhere else, so Argh!

 

However, this time, I turned off parrallel loading and that seems to be the trick.


This blog post was very helpful in resolving.  Though, mine is setup as he proposes here with SOURCE queries separated and still was hitting the issue.  That's why I tried the disable parallel loading.
