Reading ORC format files

Hi,

 

Anyone tried to read ORC format files using PowerBI, We would like to query the data in our Azure Data Lake Store which are in ORC format using PowerBI. Currently not able to read the data, Any help would be appreciated!

I don't believe that Power BI can read ORC files directly. You can, however, read the files by using a Hive ODBC connection. You submit queries to Hive, which retrieves the data from the ORC files. This does require an HDInsight or other Hadoop distribution that is online and able to access Azure Data Lake Store.

Hi alakiran,

 

To achieve data in data lake store, please refer to documentation below:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/data-lake-store/data-lake-store-power-bi.

Thanks for the response Jimmy, I already tried that article, The data in the data lake store is being stored in ORC format where they will be processed through HDInsight. The PowerBI report is not decoding the ORC format.
