Different behaviour Desktop vs Dataflow


I have a confluence page with 12 tables i want to read into power bi.

In Power Bi desktop i use the web connector, all works fine: screen 1:


However once we want to create a dataflow out of an entity or when we try to refresh the dataset, the Different behaviour occurs. Can somebody explain why this happens and how to fix?

There wasno particular error. I use a gateway with Dataflows, it looks like that the connector in Power BI Desktop can directly identify html tables and load them, while in the service i get HTML tags to naviagte (Body, DIV, Head,,)

However now an Error appear. Html deactivated in taht context:

Is HTML / Tables / legacy Websites connector not supported in Dataflow anymore?




is the tpe " HTML LEGACY" maybe not available in dataflows?
