OLE DB or ODBC error: [DataSource.Error] MySQL: Fatal error encountered during data read.

Hi all, 

 

I encountered the error message when applying query changes as below:

 

OLE DB or ODBC error: [DataSource.Error] MySQL: Fatal error encountered during data read.

 

I have checked the DB connection and the database all work fine. Can anyone advise?

Hello @Anonymous,

 

I'd say there was an error on one of the steps, perhaps it wasnt shown on the query editor, (you'd need to refresh in every single step), and there's also the possibility that some data that wasnt being loaded in the query editor was causing the error (i.e, a  # when a numeric value is expected, i've suffered a couple of times by replacing # by empty spaces after setting the data type to numeric, even tough it might work in the query editor, when the full data set is loaded it will give an error)

This is an interesting angle. Maybe MS support people can comment.

Hi,

 

Here is my update after more guess and validation. I would like to share my opinion on this topic.

After applying query change or refreshing reports, we can observe loading progress of each table. There is one table showing quite many rows loading and spending a lot of minutes. However the table actually contains very limited number of records. Thinking of calculation with SelectRows(), I narrowed down both couping tables to several records and then observed the kind of couping leading to multiplication of both table row numbers during loading. So far, root cause was basically identified.

Then, after moving mentioned calculation to data preparition phase because the calculation is unrelated to all data slicing, the loading is very very fast, just actual size of row both table loaded as per prompt. Of course, offloading dynamic calculation to report with DAX should also be another option.

After all, it can be concluded that couping b/w tables put multiplying load in loading. As a result, often dataset often fails due to expiry.

Hope helpful for you!

 

Can I talk to you in private, I have the same problem and I suffered a lot with that problem

I am suffering from the same trouble. Even though, all numberic columns were validated with any valid number, I still got "OLE DB or ODBC error: [DataSource.Error] MySQL: Fatal error encountered during data read.."

Of course, I refreshed all applied steps one by one as well.

 

Any other suggestion or idea on the situation?

I would suggest refresh first in query editor and apply it. Later click close option and move to dashboard. It worked for me.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you.

Try updating sql-netconnector and power bi. Hope this works for you.

In my case, the root cause is probably a hardware issue. Because when I try to refresh it from my laptop, no matter how Applied Steps is arranged, it still shows the error. But when I give it to my manager, it's just working fine 😐

Hello,

 

Have you checked all the steps in the query editor in case any of them gives an error? (You might have to do a refresh on the query editor)

@Salvador,

 

I have done the refresh and checked the query editor and everythings seems fine in query editor with no error return.

I managed to get rid of this error message by redoing the query steps, one by one. After completing one step then i click on close and apply and save after the applying steps succeed and repeat for second steps.

 

Anyway, i would like to know the root cause of it so that i can prevent it in future.

Hi,

 

Limiting data size is indeed working for such kind of mentioned issues. However, such limitation is not needed in final production. So we need a tradeoff approach.

Here is a magical approach I am using. I listed the steps below.

1. Define a logic parameter, named as e.g. DebugMode. Set its default value to True.

2. While importing data from data source, limit data size to proper value in case DebugMode = True.

3. Publish your PBI app to specific workspace.

4. Go to the workspace and modify the parameter to False.

5. Update your app.

 

Please try above approach. Behind it, I suppose PBI server side have stronger performance and capacity to accomodate bigger size of data.

[EDIT]
Hello,

I'm not able to use the parameter to condition the request, could you give me a hint please?

Ok I got it : & (if debug then " LIMIT 1000" else "")

it is not true, when i refresh single table which give error on main refresh, error does not appears
