All the times that something like this happened with me, the problem was that the file was saved in a newest Power BI version than you have at your computer (the Power BI's updates are very frequently..)

Hi MP123,

Can you supply some more details?  Where are you trying to open it?  Did you create it or was it shared/given to you?

I had similar kind of issue.


I had created sql stored procedures for fetching the data to Power BI report. Meanwhile someone restored the databases from Production and Stored procedures created to pull data were not available in database.


So when I tried opeining the report I was not getting any error and nothing was happening.

After deploying the stored procedures and reopening the report worked.

hi Lydia,

the problem was in my data source (it couldn't be reach)

so the power bi didn't open the file

i actually think that the scenario is to so open the file but to show error messages: problem with the data model

or something like that...


Hi @MP_123 Did you try sending feedback (the Frown button) so that the PowerBI team is aware?



thanks you all

my data source couldn't be reach, that's why the file wasn't open


thanks a lot
