An error occurred in the ‘Sample File’ query. DataSource.Error: SharePoint.

I am getting the next error message (it is in Dutch, but added the parts that needed translation in English:


An error occurred in the ‘Sample File (3)’ query. DataSource.Error: SharePoint: Request failed:



Anybody knows how to fix this?

The error message popped up when I wanted to filter a column; type: date and then select is after a certain date. The column was earlier a type text, so I changed it into date.


Thanks for your help!
