Converting ACL Error

Hi guys, I've a question about the integration of ACL with Power BI, I'm new here, so I don't understand  so much about the topic.

 

I do the connnection with ODBC and I find correctly the table I want, but, ever show me this error: 

 

DataSource.Error: ODBC: ERROR [HY000] [ACL][AclDSI] (7) Error converting Acl Connector string data ('Boa tarde!) to SQL type LONGVARCHAR.
Details:
DataSourceKind=Odbc
DataSourcePath=dsn=ACL ODBC 64
OdbcErrors=Table

 

If I delete this column where has this string, show the error on another colum, and ever is about the convertion in LONGVARCHAR.

 

If you need something else about more information, I'll respond as soon as possible.

Thanks guys.

Re: Converting ACL Error

@mathdts,

The above error message indicates that ODBC driver is not properly converting ACL's string data into an SQL equivalent. You would need to find out these text values and clean them with REGEXREPLACE function in ACL before you import data to Power BI Desktop. For more details, please review Thomas's reply in the following similar thread.
