An incompatible filter is used on a column with a parameter mapping.



I set up a Dynamic M Query Parameter and bound it to a field in one of my dimensions. Since doing this I received the following error on some of my visuals: "An incompatible filter is used on a column with a parameter mapping." The filter is a TopN. - I did not see any warning for this in the MS Documentation. 


I am still getting this error after I have:


1) Un-bound the parameter from the column, published & fully processed the table using the XMLA endpoint

2) Deleted the parameter published & fully processed the table using the XMLA endpoint


So there must be some metadata attached to the column that I cannot see, nor remove. 


Is there any way to fix this, without deleting the column and adding it to the dimension again?

Is this a bug that MS should be aware of?

@v-polly-msft it is a text parameter created in Power Query.


I used "Bind to parameter" on a column to create a Dynamic M Query parameter according to your documentation. Except I used a column that had a TopN filter set up on the filter pane. When I published the data model to the server the error "An incompatible filter is used on a column with a parameter mapping." appeard. 


So I then went back to the column and set "Bind to Parameter" to none and republished the model, I still receive the same error. 


So I then went back to power query and deleted the parameter and republished the mode, I still receive the same error. 


I have looked at your Support page, and there is no suitable category to raise this issue. Please can you suggest one.
