Salesforce refresh fails to Power BI Service (but not to Power BI Destop!)


All of my attempts to refresh my Salesforce data sets are failing even though the refresh is successful to Power BI Desktop

I was able to refresh my datasets this morning around 9:00am (PST) but now I get error messages whenever I try to refresh.


The "less than helpful" error message says:
Something went wrong.
An error occurred while processing the data in the dataset.
Please try again later or contact support and provide the following details to help resolve your issue faster.

@Megachuckmc Can you provide more information on how you connect to your data source ? If you're using any gateways I would suggest you uninstall and then install latest ones.

I am consistently having the same issue. I am using the Salesforce Sales Manager Content Pack and also the Salesforce Report Content Pack. 

If I delete the dataset and then add it back, it will work for Day 1 but all scheduled refreshes fail after this point.

I'm not using a Gateway but connecting directly to  The problem appears to be related to making changes to the queries from Power BI desktop and then attempting to refresh the datasource directly from the source (SFDC) to the Power BI service.  I'm not sure why this doesn't work, but I found a number of different posts that pointed me in that direction.
