we try to connect to AWS Athena from PowerBI via their ODBC driver. We encountered a problem with queries that have a with statement, i.e.
with a1 as ( select * from table1 ) select * from a1;
We get the error message: We encountered an error while trying to connect. Details: "This native database query isn't currently supported."
Queries without with statement work fine, also with queries work with a JDBC driver. I couldn't find any problems while checking logs of the ODBC Athena driver, it looks to me like a problem of PowerBI.
Any idea what could causing this and how to solve it? Nesting the queries gets quite ugly.
Thanks for any help.
As you test, it doesn't support CTE query in this case, you would need to remove with statement in the query to connect to your data source.
