API-Kobo toolbox

Hello community! I turn to you because we are experiencing a difficulty in loading data from a Kobo toolbox API. The following happens:

1. The data is uploaded to Kobo.

2. A web connection is generated in Power bi

3. In Power Bi, completely different data is displayed for a specific column. For example: in the form and in the Kobo database a data is recorded as Chile and in the power bi the data is shown as Republic of the Congo.

Someone has experienced something like it

Hi @furucia_25 ,


I know little about Kobo. But one idea:


Please check the regional setting of your Power BI Desktop firstly:


1. Choose the locale for importing data into Power BI Desktop




2. Choose the language for the model in Power BI Desktop




Best Regards,
