Missing data import from dataflow



Im new to power bi and I can't seem to find the reason why my data import in power bi desktop is incomplete. I am missing around 30,000 rows when importing from my dataflow (which connects to my VPS sql database via a gateway). 


The problem is that I am seeing the rows in my dataflow when editing in the power query editor service but when I am importing this into the power query editor desktop I am only seeing the rows unitl 27 february 2024 and missing all the recent rows up until today (some 30k rows). 


Am I missing something very obvious? Last week I had the same issue, I then created a new dataflow with the same settings and it worked. Today this dataflow has the same issue when I refreshed the data in power bi desktop.

After importing this into power bi desktop i have exactly 50,000 rows (supposed to be more than 80,000).

How many rows do you see after you Close & Apply Power Query? (You can check it on the Table view)
