Power Query API error

Hi. 

Im rather new to PowerBi and would appreciate some help with an error I've been getting. 

 

I am calling the web API to bring in Product info from Repsly and this is the code that I am using: 

 

let
Final = List.Generate
(
()=>
[
Result= Json.Document(Web.Contents("https://xxxxxxx@api.repsly.com/v3/export/products/0", [Headers=[Accept="application/json"]])),
TotalCount = 1

],
each [TotalCount]>0,
each
[

Result= Json.Document(Web.Contents("https://xxxxxxxxx@api.repsly.com/v3/export/products/" & Text.From([Result][MetaCollectionResult][LastID]), [Headers=[Accept="application/json"]])) ,
TotalCount = [Result][MetaCollectionResult][TotalCount]

],

each [Result][Products]
),
FinalTable = Table.FromRecords(List.Combine(Final))
in
FinalTable

 

The API is limited to 50 rows so this loops the API and brings in all the required information. I have investigated and the API has an issue that creates an additional blank row or a "null" value row at the end of the product list. 

This means that I am getting in all the product rows but it creates an error in the bottom row right below the final value. 

I have tried to remove the error by using standard options like "remove error/row etc" and replace values but it does not work.

I assume I have to eliminate the error in my call to the API. 

Can anyone assist with how I need to incorporate this into my code?

change line 23 to filter out the null values. You may also want to review your code. Aren't you supposed to use NextID rather than LastID ?

Thanks, how would you add the filter? 

The API documentation confirms LastID and this code works perfectly for all the other endpoints.
