DataFormat.Error: We reached the end of the buffer.

I have a report that is set to refresh daily, where it adds 1MM+ rows of JSON data (about 85K rows of data after formatting to table) daily. When I set my date range in the body of my request to greater than two days and try to refresh on PowerBI Desktop, I get the following error message:

 

"DataFormat.Error: We reached the end of the buffer."

 

When I reduce the date range to two days or less (about 2.5MM rows in the JSON response/about 170K rows of tabular data), it runs fine, which tells me it's an issue with size. Does anybody know a solution to this or a workaround?

 

Thanks.

1. Try reinstall desktop, which has worked for someone who had the same issue.

2. Try change max cache size in the option. It looks a memory issue.
