Hi,

 

I am receiving the following message when using Power BI "Model Objects names must be non-empty". What does this error message mean and how do I correct ir?

Hi @gusdahu,

Which action do you perform then the error throws out?

Based on my test, the cause maybe you promote the first row as headers, but in a couple of columns it was empty(like the below picture), so you got the error. I suggest you to rename the missing columns and it will be solved.

One of my source files had an empty header in one column, that was all. Thanks for your contribution.

Hi Daniel,

 

The issue was that I had some blank columns in my data set. Once I deleted the blank columns, the error went away.

 

Thank you for following up!
