Couldn't load the data for this visual

When I refresh the data on my PowerBi Server I encounter this error message.



I used Direct Query. 

With the same data imported, I do not have any issue. However I need the Direct Query to reduce the size of the file. Could you please advise on how to solve this issus please?

@mariehh ,


Which data source are you connecting? Please check if the data source supports direct query and also check if power bi desktop(report server) has been updated to the latest version.
