direct query error without doing transformations

When I use direct query functionality to retrieve data from a database (without doing any transformations) I get the following error message:

'this query contains transformations that can't be used for directquery.'

 

Any ideas why this message appears?

 

thanks!

 

regards Bart

Hi Ehren, sure. the sql is nothing special. just a count and a group by

 

select x, count(a1.pkey)

from x1 a1
Join x2 a3 on
where x in ('xx','xxx') 
group by x

Hi there. Can you share the full M formula text of your PQ queries (not just the SQL)?

Can you share the M formula text of the query where you're seeing this error?
