Data.Format.Error Cannot load the data as it's too complicated



I was getting the error when calling power query in Excel to extract data from SAP.




which is saying that the data I got from the query is too complicated to load back.


Originally when I build the query, it worked well on my laptop but the error occured when I try to send to spreadsheet along with the query to the user. I also did not find any similar errors or any solutions. Anyone here would be able to help? Thanks in advance for your time and suggestions!

Hi, @Naiyez ;

You could try to remove errors across all columns (new step). This avoids the error at load. 


Please refer to this url.
