Error with Flow Map visual

Hi, I have a problem in applying a Flow Map whereby when I add a destination field from my table, the vusial turns from a map to this:

When I remove the Destination field, the map displays normal again. 

Would anyone have any ideas why this might be occurring? It has me completely stumped. Thanks.

Hi Pratyashasamal,

 

you wouldn't believe the problem (it's now solved). The PBI file I was working on was  a copy of another file, as in copy-paste. I did this in case I made any errors while modifying the file. As it turns out, never do this (copy-paste a PBI file). If you do this, the copied file causes conflicts when making changes. Some how the two files remain 'connnected'  This is why the cpied files wasn't responding to the new data I'd added. 

 

Instead, I took the original file, 'Saved As', and renamed the new file. Upon wokring on it, the issue no longer exists. The new file is repsonding fine now with no conflicts. The Flow is working properly.  

 

Many thanks for your response.

Hello,

There might be some reason which is causing those errors please check below,

 

  1. The data type of the new field you are adding to the destination field is compatible with the existing fields in the visualization. 

  2. Please check if there are any null or blank values in the new field you are adding.

  3. make sure that there are no typos or missing values in the new field.

  4. The settings of the Flow Map visualization should be set correctly.

  5. Make sure that the version of Power BI you are using is up-to-date.

 

Thanks,
