DataSource.Error: AnalysisServices: The server sent an unrecognizable response. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I tried to connect to a Analysis Services Database via PowerQuery and i got the following Error Message:

    "DataSource.Error: AnalysisServices: The server sent an unrecognizable response."

    If i connect to the same database with the standart Excel Data connector it works just fine.

    I have installed Version 9, 11 and 12.

    Any Ideas?

  • Hi Tom,

    This can happen if your AS model has invalid XML characters. You may find some information online from other customers that have hit this issue in other client products.

    If you enable tracing and send the trace files to use via the "Send A Frown" feature, we will be able to help you determine exactly why this is happening.
