Empty tables

Hi, I sometimes (more and more often) have the experience of empty tables and visualizations in existing PBIX-files containing multiple tables. When I open the query, all data in all tables are present, but after closing the query, nothing is there. When navigating to tables at left, they are all empty. This happens even if all data were present last time I opened the file, and I did nothing but saving and closing the file. Using refresh doesn't help anything. Sometimes I need to start all over (can take plenty of days, as I have a large datamodel and about 100 measures and custom columns) and this is thus making me rethink if Power BI is worth investing my time in in the future. I have the latest version of PBI Desktop installed. Any suggestions are highly appreciated. Thanks, Marianne

Hi @MarianneElver


It is hard to debug the issue that you are experiencing, it may be due to some connection problem or may be due to some change in your source file.

Here are alternative that you can try to figure the bug out.


Right Click on your dataset and select Edit Query

Now Right Click on the Query and Disable this two high lighted field.



Save the report and close.



If this fix the problem then the problem is with your source and connection.

Hi @kaushikd


I am also having this issue. For example I have a relationship between customers and account owners and the account owner table is blank when joining but not in the query itself. 


It was not an issue before. Could it be that I have too many queries and relationships?
