Can't refresh Google Analytics data via Power BI dataflows

I have established a connection to Google Analytics data using Power BI dataflows. Within one dataflow, I have successfully set up two tables that query data from Google Analytics and refresh without any issues.

However, when I created a new table within the same dataflow, it started causing refresh failures. This new table is pulling Date, Transaction ID, Source-medium, and Unique purchases from google analytics. 

I suspect that there may be a size limit associated with pulling data from the Google Analytics API through Power BI dataflows, but not 100% sure. 

I would appreciate any insights or information regarding size limitations when retrieving data from the Google Analytics API using Power BI dataflows.
