API returning only 1000 results

I'm using the SDMX API to call up census data, and there are 1600+ rows, but Power BI is only importing 1000. 


This is the API:,DF_FSA/A5..1.229.1


I'm following Curbal's tutorial on pagination, but the syntax is such that I don't know how or where to put the page # (it's different from her example)

For example, I've tried tacking on the following, and they don't work: 



-,DF_FSA/A5..1.229.1/?page=2 (error message*),DF_FSA/

-,DF_FSA/A5..1.229.1.?page=2 (error message*),DF_FSA/A5..1.229.1.?page_i... (error message*),DF_FSA/A5..1.229.1/?page_id=2 (error message*)


The error message is "unprocessable entity (422)"


Does anyone know the syntax to get the second page of data?

Hi @bonjourposte,

I'd like to suggest you take a look at the following official document link with some helper functions to know how to handle pagination API:

Thanks, I contacted SDMX, and they said there is no page 2.  The entire data WAS loading into Power BI, but I couldn't get it out into Excel.  I eventually just manually merged every Code ID in a matrix visual, clicked the three dots, and exported to csv.
