External Data Refresh Failed - ThisWorkbookDataModel RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I've got two workbooks with Power Query uploaded to Power BI. One of them was working fine, another one was failing randomly. Now when I try opening any of them it is returning the following:

    External Data Refresh Failed
    We were unable to refresh one or more data connections in this workbook.
    The following connections failed to refresh:

    The both workbooks use the same Power Query data source (linked to a SQL Server database). "Test connection" works fine. Auto-refresh also works fine. However, the above error is popping out every time I open a workbook from Power BI.

    ThisWorkbookDataModel exists in both workbooks and seems to be a "virtual" connection which you cannot modify anyway. 

    Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
