Uploaded dataset/report from Desktop not populating with data from CSV Azure Storage Blob



I used this guide here to create a report in Power BI Desktop, pulling data from a CSV in an Azure Storage Blob


In Power BI Desktop it works fine, I can see the data from the CSV, and have created tables and graphs in my report.


But when I publish it to Power BI Service, the dataset can refresh without any error's, but it does not show as having any columns, resulting in the report also not loading.


Does anyone know what I need to do to get this working online?

Hi @CookieMonster20 ,

Please ensure the connection mode.

Does the column not appear before or after the refresh?  Please provide a screenshot for more details.

Hi @CookieMonster20 


If you can make sure you can refresh the dataset in the Power BI Service?


If you can, then I would make sure that the same files do have data and the same columns from Azure Blob storage and that you have the right permissions created to read the files?
