Data refresh error:The exception was raised by the IDbCommand interface


Recently i've been running into this issue where I am unable to schedule refresh or refresh my data from the Power BI online client.

My dashboards are connected to SQL and it has worked before. However now I keep getting the error message below when trying to refresh:


Last refresh failed: Tue Aug 14 2018 08:33:06 GMT+0800 (Singapore Standard Time) 
There was an error when processing the data in the dataset.
Hide details

Data source error:The command has been canceled.. The exception was raised by the IDbCommand interface.
Activity ID:9712ab71-9fbe-4939-b630-2b57c28fd182
Request ID:fe788762-9ff6-484c-44ea-eedc6228eec1
Time:2018-08-14 00:33:06Z


my gateway is an on premise data gateway (not personal) version number: 14.16.6697 (May 2018).


can anyone highlight what this EDbCommand interface actually does and why is there an exception raised by this module?


Much thanks

From what I understand it is this:


or something similar at least.


I'd suggest using Power BI desktop and doing a manual refresh of the data model yourself.  You should get a more detail explaination through there.

It is worth to check all your data queries are using the same format of setup especially using SQL as Data Source.


A max up setup will cause the exception of IDbCommand interface.


Hope this could solve your problem.
