hi, @v-lili6-msft

                           Thank you so much for your response. I already fixed the issue. The thing is we need to specify not just tge database but also the table while creating a mongoDB DSN in odbc .

 

With regards,

hi, @Anonymous

I have tested on my side, but not reproduce the issue.

Here is a tutorial for your reference:

https://docs.mongodb.com/bi-connector/master/connect/powerbi/

and check if you set up DSN correctly.

 

Best Regards,

Lin

I am new to the Power BI. Could you please elaborate on how to specify the table name while creating the system DSN for a mongodb database?
