[Solved] Power BI Dataset Refresh Error – The key didn’t match any rows in the table

This week I got an error on my dataset schedule refresh which I was not able to solve and the error message also weird as I have not encountered this before. Finally, I have fixed the error with the help of Power BI support team.
When I get the error message and I have checked the report and tried to fix it but no luck. I googled this error message and found one result in Microsoft community forum. Around 2 users got the same error message last month and no solution was discussed so I thought it would be helpful to everyone if I post a solution.

This is the reason behind of this article.


I have created a dataflow for one table and used that table in my Power BI report with other SQL Server tables. When I schedule a report refresh, I got a below error message.
{“error”:{“code”:”ModelRefresh_ShortMessage_ProcessingError”,”pbi.error”:{“code”:”ModelRefresh_ShortMessage_ProcessingError”,”parameters”:{},”details”:[{“code”:”Message”,”detail”:{“type”:1,”value”:”The key didn’t match any rows in the table.”}}],”exceptionCulprit”:1}}} Table: Product.
I have tried all the below steps as part of investigation.
1. Checked the report in Power BI Desktop and refreshed it. It works well.
2. Refreshed the dataflow in service, again it refreshed successfully.
3. Both on-demand & schedule refresh of dataset throws same error message.


I have reached Power BI support team and fixed the issue.
1. They first started with dataflow. Asked me to refresh the dataflow.
2. Then asked me to create a report using only dataflow.
3. Again, new report with only SQL server table without dataflow. All the steps are worked well.
4. Checked the gateway connections.

Finally, they asked to re-enter the datasource credentials again. This fixed the issue.

Yes. Re-enter the datasource credentials which will fix the error. Try this solution and fix your error.
