Dataset not refreshing - Possible Data limit hit?

Hi all,

Hoping someone can assist with my dire problem.


I received an email today that my dataset didn't refresh.

I decided to look at power BI and saw the following error:




Nothing was changed in the last day to cause this.

As it appears that it's able to pull some lists. however it's saying it's unable to get contents from the big list.

When I looked at the list settings I see that it's exceeded 5000 rows. Is this what is causing the list to not work in my Power Queries?





Or is there anything I can do to get the list showing in my reports again?
