Invalid placeholder in format string - Error

Hi, 

I am getting an "Invalid placeholder in format string" - Error. This just happend after the automatic refresh was disabled and I wanted to enable it again. Nothing else was changed. The data source is a PowerBI Dataflow and I can refresh it on PowerBI Desktop, just not on the Service. I can even refresh it if I download the pbix from the Service and then refresh it in Desktop. 

 

Has anybody experienced this as well and found a solution to it? 

 

Here is a screenshot of the error message:

Thank you in advance.

hi

I couldn't reproduce this error, try to clear browser cache or use another browser  to have a try.

Cleared the cache in Chrome and tried Edge, but that doesn't change it.

Already did that and tried uploading it into a different workspace. Same result. I can refresh in Desktop but not in the Service. 

Should I create a support ticket or do you have another idea?

Now I am getting the same error for a different report in a different workspace. This only happens for datasets that are connected to a dataflow.
