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.

Re: Reading ORC format files

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.
