Power Query not loading data - Stalling

Recently I have had both relatively small power queries (180 rows, 10 lines of M code) and larger (approx. 6000 rows, 25 lines of M code) stall at the load stage. It happened first with the larger query and I thought it had to do with the size of the query. But it has now happened with smaller queries as well. I have never successfully loaded the above queries, but can load other queries just fine.

If it is loaded to a sheet, it will load a small portion of the query (15% of the query output rows, the last row consists of 3 periods in each column and then stall without loading anymore data. The Workbook Queries status bar shows that the query is still loading, but never goes anywhere.

The same result if I load it to the data model without anything at all showing up in the data model.

Any ideas?

Excel 2016 32bit

Thanks

I was afraid of that, a random issue that crops up when I need data in a timely manner. I downloaded your example, copied the query, and tried to load it which had the same results....it stalled at 100 rows loaded. I am able to refresh other data models I have with 7-10 large queries without issues.

Very strange, I did Refresh and whole "your" table is loaded immediately

so maybe try re-build your Query from the beginning

btw.

Yep, I tried that as well previously (rebuilding from scratch). A bit frustrating but I guess I'll have to chalk this one up to a MS oddity.

Thanks for giving it a try!

you are welcome
maybe:
- restart computer (old rule: if you have no choice - turn off / turn on :) )
- update office

btw. I did try with "Add this data to the Data Model" and it was loaded in a seconds
