OLE DB or ODBC error: Exception from HRESULT: 0x80040E4E

Hi PBI friends!

 

I'm receiving this error message "OLE DB or ODBC error: Exception from HRESULT: 0x80040E4E" when trying to refresh data that I loaded into my Power BI model from Google Analytics.

Has anyone seen this Open Database Connectivity (ODBC)/Object Linking and Embeding Database (OLE DB) error message before?

 

Thank you so much in advance for your help! 

 

Best,

Hello,

 

I come across with the error and when I refreshed my laptop network connectin (or VPN), it actually worked. This is just a simple solution.

Hope you find the answer for your query.

 

Thanks,

Hello, I, too, am experiencing this issue. The solution was discovered after a thorough investigation.
1. Create a duplicate of your working file.
2. Choose any one source --> Edit query.

3. Check any date field data type that is not automatically transformed to date.
4. Fix this. It should work.

 

Thanks, Karthik from India.

Hi.... u may try this.. before I apply/load the Power Query, I just remove connection between the data (data connector/relationship) first from the model view. When I apply it working fine, then I just manually create the connection back.

 

Some of them also said that we can found the error within Power Query after load, need to get rid of the error, then reloaded it.

Please open power query and navigate to the queries that are showing the error. Check each step within the query to find where the error is, and share the shareshot.

I am facing the same issue but there is no issue showing in the power query!

How do I resolve this, though when I click on appy changes it starts loading the row but taking long time and in between this error pops up.

Did you have any luck figuring out what was casuing your error?  I'm having the same issue, Power Query works fine but when I apply I get this error.  The data is coming from a folder containing Excel files which are then combined.  Files are identical in structure and there aren't any corrupt ones or anything like that.

Hi, I don't know if this can help u guys but for mine, it works. I just delete the data connector/relationship first from the model view. When I apply it working fine, then I just manually create the connection back.
