Power Query October Update failing to connect to Facebook RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have installed the latest Power Query update, and now it no longer seems able to connect to facebook.

    Just a simple list of my likes or friends is failing with an expression error. See the image below.

    I can't see how I'm doing anything wrong as I'm using the Power Query interface and now hand crafting the PQ query.

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks

  • Hi Craig,

    Thanks for reporting this issue. We are not aware of any general issue with the Facebook connector in this release. Could you also try a different kind of connector, such as From Web, From SQL Server, or even just type "= 5" in the fx bar?

    Please let us know the outcome and we can then try other troubleshooting options.

    Regards,
    M.

  • I am getting a similar error with most connection types. "From Web", "From SQL Server" are both failing as well.

    The ones that I've found that is working is "From Folder", "From Excel". "= 5" is also working.

    I may be way off base, but it appears that the failing ones are ones that need some sort of authentication or Internet connectivity
