Dataflow - Refresh Issue - Query works fine, when refreshing this comes up..
So I have just gotten access to a Company Gateway and wanted to test setting up a dataflow. The query designer runs fine and there are no issues when validating the query.
However when I want to manually refresh the dataflow it gives me the error below, but I have no idea on what it is actually giving the error.. It doesn't state any column? My datatypes are all correctly set up I think? (see pictures included)
Invalid date,TEST DATA FLOW 1 to refresh,Mislukt,Fact PL Data - TEST DATAFLOW,21/11/2019 17:32:13,21/11/2019 17:32:48,Mislukt,Error: We couldn't convert to Number... RootActivityId = c8cac63c-ae27-4a63-871d-c1aa721ac28e.Param1 = We couldn't convert to Number. Request ID: 4d1a7298-5a18-1d91-8d67-d2ecbeb1a59a.
Can someone give me some more info on why this is happening? No idea how I can figure out here what went wrong..
EDIT: I tried to load the raw data without any extra step in the query (so no conditional columns).
I tried this multiple times for different Excel files in my folder (which have the exact same columns and row data) and which load perfectly normal in desktop version when published => Somehow for some Excel files it randomly gives this exact same error.. And for some Excel files it doesn't..
It seems to be totally random and I have no idea why it's happening.. All of the data in the Excel files is exactly the same and it should make no difference at all..
I tried refreshing with 2 Excel files are in the folder => It works
I add 2 random excel files => Stops working..
I delete those 2 random excel files giving the error so that I just have those 2 original ones which were working => Stops working...
So this behaviour seems totally random and I don't know what is causing this..
I'm using sharepoint folder as connector, in that also I'm getting same error in the dataflow.
I've first created a code in Power BI Desktop, there the code was working perfectly, now I copy & pasted the code to my dataflow, and added credentials, but if I'm refreshing my dataflow, I'm getting same error.
Error: DataFormat.Error: We couldn't convert to Number. (.. RootActivityId = cf3a5bf9-106a-4c82-94bd-f855b92f7aca.Param1 = DataFormat.Error: We couldn't convert to Number. ( Request ID: ba9ff2ea-e988-49f3-8e85-a36235a6fc8f.
Do anyone have an idea, why this kind of issue is happening
