Error using Pdf.Tables in dataflow

I am trying to ingest a pdf into a dataflow, but get the following error:  

 

"import Pdf.Tables matches no exports"

 

Is Pdf.Tables not supported in dataflows? I have sucessfully ingested Excel and XML into dataflows but not pdf.

Re: Error using Pdf.Tables in dataflow

Hi @cz8vyv ,

Based on my test, PDF is not a supported source in Dataflow, while Excel and XML are all supported.

Re: Error using Pdf.Tables in dataflow

Thanks @TeigeGao, however what I'm looking for is an idea/indication/timeline of when pdf ingestion will be supported within dataflows? 

 

Seems an omission that they are supported in the power bi desktop and in the web service but not in dataflows.

PDF now appears as an option when you add entities in dataflows.
