Data Refresh Error - OLE DB or ODBC error (DataFormat.Error) 'Text' is an invalid XmlNodeType

Hello all,

First question for you experts out there. I refreshed my data this morning from an existing output file from an extraction process and came across this error. I assume its a format error but I cannot seem to find anything wrong with the file. I assume this relates to a specific line in the excel file but i can't see an issue... Any help on what this error could be pointing me to would be very much appreciated. Thanks. (image of error below)

Thanks for getting in touch. It turns out that the excel file that was created as an output of a query had corrupted. Once the file was replaced it worked just fine. Learnings here are to make sure the data sources are working. 🙂

Hi @dheslin 

 

What is your data source and which connector did you use to connect to it? Does this error occur in Power BI Desktop? Did you refresh the same data source successfully before or it's the first time you connected to this data source?

 

If this happens in Power BI Desktop, I suggest that you go to Home tab > Transform data to open Power Query Editor. Then in APPLIED STEPS pane, click steps one by one from top to bottom to find out from which step this error appears. 

 

If possible, can you share a screenshot of error message in Power Query Editor (after removing sensitive data)?
