Column not showing

A few of my columns are not comming into Power BI from the data source.

I have selected "get data" and selected the table I would like from SQL Server I then selected the table view on the left side of screen. I would expect to see the full table with all of the rows and columns, essientially the same as I would see from:  "SELECT * FROM [Database]" in SQL. However, there are columns missing from my data, any thoughts??

Hi @tstackhouse,

 

I've faced this situation either with SQL View or Excel spreadsheets. I could get my data deleting the cache in PBI Desktop and refreshing again.

 

File -> Options and settings -> Options -> Data Load -> Clear cache;

 

Sometimes I have to force the update by trying to add another table from SQL/Excel. So PBI updates the catalog of data.

 

I hope it helps you,

 

Ricardo
