Hi @Tangelo-tech ,


This seem quite unique and highly unusual.  I do not find any other references to this type of issue.  I think that you should open a ticket with Microsoft and please let us all know the result as I am hoping this is a "one-off" for you but would like to know the solution.

Did I answer your question? Mark my post as a solution!

Proud to be a Datanaut!
