sharepoint: request failed: unable to connect to the remote server

Helo everyone, please see below how my dataset looks like:

2 tables:

- 1 excel from Sharepoint: MAP_ERRORS with "ERROR NAME" and "ERROR Description"




Invalid value,invalid data type for attribute

-1 SQL Server Table EMEA_AM_AP with "ITEM_PK" "STATUS" "Error_message"


code1,KO,null:RuntimeException:data not complaint


I would like to create a new column in table EMEA_AM_AP where if I find one of the Error Description messages, to have automatically the ERROR NAME. For example:

ITEM_PK,STATUS,Error_message, ERROR Type

code1,KO,null:RuntimeException:data not complaint,Exception


I succeeded to do that with the following power queries:

#"Added Error_type" = Table.AddColumn(#"Renamed Columns1", "Error Type", each Table.SelectRows(MAP_ERRORS, (outer) => Text.Contains([Error_message], outer[ERROR Description]))),
#"Expanded Error Type" = Table.ExpandTableColumn(#"Added Error_type", "Error Type", {"ERROR NAME"}, {"ERROR NAME"}),


On Power BI Desktop everything is working perfect, but if I refresh the report on the Service, I got this error message:

  • Underlying error code-2147467259
  • Underlying error messageSharePoint: Request failed: Unable to connect to the remote server
  • DM_ErrorDetailNameCode_UnderlyingHResult-2147467259
  • Microsoft.Data.Mashup.ValueError.DataSourceKindSharePoint

Please note that all data souce settings are set to organizational.

Could you please give me an idea of how to fix this issue?

Try to use the Sharepoint.Contents connector instead of the Sharepoint.Files connector, and try to use API14 instead of 15.
