help with error Premium caller trying to read premium per user information.



i have a dataset that calls a dataflow containing a table called shortages with dispo. we have premium capacity and i am a pro user. the dataflow is updating with no errors, but when i try to refresh the dataset i get the below:


Premium caller trying to read premium per user information.. The exception was raised by the IDataReader interface. Please review the error message and provider documentation for further information and corrective action. Table: Shortages with dispo.


this report worked on a previous premium capacity, and refreshes fine on powerbi desktop, but once it is published gives the error.  I have never seen this error and google isnt helping. Any suggestions to a fix?


Facing same error, does anyone have any solution?


I have report published on Power BI workspace with Premium embeded capacity, this report pulls data from Dataflow which is saved on different PBI workspace with Premium per User -> this retursn error above.


It is interesting that when report is published to differnt workspace which is also Premium per user, there is no issue.


Any idea?

Hi @jdebett 


The error would indicate that it cannot read the source data?


If that still fails and without any more information I would suggest contacting support
