DataSource.Error RRS feed

  • Question

  • When running Power Query to refresh the data, I am receiving the following error:

    (DataSource.Error) SharePoint: Request Failed: The Remote Server returned an error: (500) Internal Server Error. (An error occurred while processing the request.)



    I have not been able to resolve why i am receiving this error message which is preventing users from being able to 'Refresh' the data. Any assistance that can be provided will be greatly appreciated.

  • It's a server-side error, and therefore out of our control. There are certain types of columns you can add to a list (like "managed metadata", I think) for which this SharePoint API just doesn't work. That may be the case here.
