Hi. Qiuyun Yu.


I reinstalled the recent downloaded version of Power BI Desktop and try again. And that is what happen.

Issue appear after load data from web link: https://www.bankrate.com/retirement/best-and-worst-states-for-retirement/ , provided in Power BI Desktop getting started page. Error message shown directly after hitting Apply or Coles&Apply on Home Tab of Power Query Editor.

Hi, Qiuyun Yu.

 

Exact version is 2.79.5768.1082 64-bit as you mentioned.

 

I did not load data from Navigator immediately. Before I go to Query Editor to shape data. Do some simple work.  What is interesting, I receive no errors in that steps, all table data loads to and shown in Query Editor. Error occurs when hit Apply or Colse&Apply in Query Editor.

 

I run it on Windows 10 64 bit Russian.

I could only suppose that it could be somewhere in code page settings of windows maybe. But PBI Installar had to install necessary components regardles of OS, I think.

 

Old version however run fine.

I am just starting PBI and that does business for now.

 

I reported this error, when the app offered to.

 

Best,

Emil
