Get data from web not showing table

Screenshot of the Web Data Source HTML Table: https://db.tt/itJWOxIF

 

I'm endlessly drilling into the tables, but I never see any data (Screenshot: https://db.tt/t5Y9urBj)

 

What can I do?

Re: Get data from web not showing table

@fabianhenzler power bi web connector will return back table when on the webpage it is defined as HTML table ie making use of th, tr etc tags. Otherwise it just returns document that is hard to scroll through to find data. Use below URL and it will return table and then check page source.

Re: Get data from web not showing table

Hi @ankitpatira

thanks for the help 🙂

I found out that the root cause is that Power BI uses an non-modern aka old Browser to do that, which is not supported by most of the WebData Sources I use.

Any Idea what I can do about that?
