  •  In Power BI Desktop while connecting to ODBC (SQL source) it was showing that "format of initialization string doesn't conform to the specification starting at 0 index". what it means?

    I created DSN and i am giving that exact DSN name in power BI Desktop eventhough it was showing that error.
