Data flow populating some - but not all columns in desktop

Hello all, 


I have come across a strange situation where I've created a new dataflow (Drawing data from a Dynamics entity). After doing the transformations in Power Query, I saved the dataflow and refreshed it in the service. 


I then loaded the dataflow in desktop - and all lines of the dataset have loaded - But some columns are completely blank - but yet there is definitely data in the column in question (confirmed when looking at it in power query) - but the same column is blank when opening in desktop?


Any why only some fields? Seems strange that it loads nearly all other columns with all data in the dataset - but some columns are blank??


Any guidance on where to start troubleshooting would be appreciated.

Hi @Paulo84 ,


Actually I have this issue before. On my side ,It's because there is too much data to load completely at once.

After sliding the scroll bar with the mouse, more data will be displayed. Please have a try!
