Power BI Integration

Recommended Posts


i have been using the R Script integration to Power Bi, i have tried to update the data this morning and get the following error. Any ideas what this may be???

Has been working fine until yesterday


DataFormat.Error: Unable to translate bytes [E2][80] at index 1083 from specified code page to Unicode.

Hi @AndyGilly,

I've seen this before, and it's usually down to the Windows smart-quote characters finding their way into the dataframe that R is returning to Power BI. If you change csvEncoding variable in the R script to ISO-8859-1 then you should see your data returned to Power  BI again - but with those pesky characters replaced by something that Power BI can handle.


Let me know how you get on.
