Hi Vikram.

Looks like you trying to use InterSystems IRIS Power BI Adaptor to connect to Caché. This adaptor does not support Caché.

Use ODBC connection to connect to Caché from Power BI.

Hope this helps,


Its working..

Thanks Alex, thanks for your help.


I connected the Cache from Power BI using ODBC connection. And I can able to view the tables but I could't able to view the data records. getting some error when I shoot on the table name. I could't trace what I'm missing. Please help me

Error Message: "Value cannot be null. Parameter name: exceptionType"




I also see this error for some tables. I don't know what's causing this.

I've googled it and looks like some error with ODBC Connections from Power BI.

Okay, Thanks Alex.

If any other possible to view that table records , please let me know.
