Hi @Surjeet ,

 

To disable native query folding, set the EnableFolding flag to false for Value.NativeQuery() in the advanced editor.

If you remove the; semi-colon at the end of your query. It works perfectly.

Hey @Surjeet ,

 

that's a common error for Postgres databases. The reason is that Power BI is adding a query folding by default.

Search for the error message and you will get a lot of similar topics.

 

However, since a while there is an option to turn the folding off:

Value.NativeQuery(target as any, query, null, [EnableFolding=false])

Check the documentation about that:

Power Query PostgreSQL connector | Microsoft Docs

 

If you need any help please let me know.
If I answered your question I would be happy if you could mark my post as a solution ✔️ and give it a thumbs up 👍
 
Best regards
Denis
