Hi All,


While import the data from Azure blob in Power BI, It shows the expression error 


Expression.Error: The evaluation reached the allowed cache entry size limit. Try increasing the allowed cache size.

Hi @Anonymous ,


Try to increase the Maximum allowed (MB).


Cache Size for Power BI Desktop

It's good practice that before you schedule the report, you validate the complete dataset. One additional help for this, especially in the cases of larger datasets retrieved from the API, is to increase the cache limits. This increase can improve PowerBI's performance and stability. To configure this:

  1. Click Settings->Options->Global->Data Load to expose the "Data Cache Management Options".
  2. Try increasing the Maximum allowed (MB):to 16000 (or about double what the current setting is).
