Data load error from SQL DB Object reference not set to an instance of an object

After July update, my report returns error 'Object reference not set to an instance of an object' when trying to connect to SQL Data Warehouse via direct query.


There were no problems previous to this - needs resolved ASAP.

@Anonymous ,


Does this issue occurs when you update power bi desktop to the latest version. If so, they should be an issue in the latest version. However, I'm not able to reproduce this issue on my side. So I would suggest you download and install the previous version here.
