Separate multiple entries from SharePoint List Person Type fields

In Power BI Desktop, how do I seperate the people listed as multiple entries in a column on my SharePoint Online List?

 

SharePoint Online List column settings:

Type = Person

Allow multiple selections = Yes

Power BI Query loads the data as a Table, but the table cannot be expanded or values extracted. Selecting an entry from the table shows errors.

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

Is there any calculated columns from your share point site library. Please deleted them and try again.

Hi Frank, no calculated columns. FYI, I can toggle the column for single entries only and it works fine. It is the allowance of multiple entries into the person column that is causing the dataset to change from a single value to a record list which I cannot expand or extract to get the multiple values from.

I am having the same issue. Did you find a solution, @Anonymous
