Missing data in Power BI with SAP BW as source

Dear all,


I am facing a strange issue while importing data from SAP BW CDS view to Power BI. A few hundred rows out of ~10,000 rows are missing in Power BI, moreover a few values in a column are blank. I have tried clearing cache, checked credentials, etc. 

I can see those rows when logged in using same user to SAP GUI. Please guide in navigating this issue.


Many thanks,

Hi @mahesh_powerbi ,

Base on my research, currently Power BI can't import data from CDS view using the built-in SAP HANA connector directly. The Custom CDS Views can be easily exposed as OData Service(API) which can then be utilized to fetch data out from SAP S/4HANA Cloud. You can use OData feed connector in Power BI Desktop to connect to import data from CDS view. You can refer the following links to connect it...

Create CDS views in SAP S/4HANA Cloud and consume them as APIs

ABAP CDS - From a CDS View to an OData Service for Analytics

Connect Microsoft PowerBI to SAP Data Warehouse Cloud
