Hi @grobinson ,

As far as I know, you can try to use the direct connector which is bulit in Power BI Desktop to try to connect.



Before using it, you need download and install the client from SAP SQL Anywhere driver on your computer,  make sure that the driver you install matches the bit version of your Power BI Desktop.

thanks you very much,

I have 64 bit power bi. i installed the sap sybase anywhere 64 bit driver but it doesn't work. There is also the detail that the edition of the sap sybase database that we use is the ASE Adaptive Server Enterprise. Is it a compatibility problem?

Power bi has connector for sap sybase ASE Adaptive Server Enterprise or do we have another alternative ?

We still need support to connect from power bi to sybase Adaptive Server Enterprise Edition version 16
