PowerBi and mdb

I am having an access database in .mdb format. I'm trying to connect this mdb file with PowerBi to build some statistics and visualize the data.  I tried to import it directly (From Access Database) and through ODBC (defined) but in both scenarios, I can see the structure of the database and the tables but when I click on any table I only see " This table is empty" 




The data base is a backend one and has only data with no queries ! 


I tried the same with excel , and it shows same issue.  The topics discussed in the forum also was reviewed but not really helpful in my case.

@KareemT , Just open power query and check if is there any step that is giving errors or removing the data.


If needed log an issue too:


There are no steps as per the pic below :
