Hi

 

I am facing the problem, that the report I was working on yesterday cannot be opened anymore. Even I tried all options.

So I tried to download the report again from PowerBI Web Service. 

An error occured.

 

I was told it can come from incremental load, but the incrementel load was set in June, the amount of data is small 20MB file.

 

Please help
