    Hi All,

    I am getting below error in loading data into Power BI Desktop from SQL Server on prime, number of records are 9485777

    There's not enough memory to complete this operation, please try again later when there may be more memory available.

    I noticed that one more exe (msmdsrv.exe) is automatically running with Power BI which consuming lot of memory.

    so please help me

    Hi there,

    Are you using the X86 or X64 for Power BI Desktop?

    It would appear that you are using the X86 (32bit) which has a memory limitation which you are now hitting. 

    I would suggest installing the X64 (64bit) which will allow it to access all the memory available on your PC.

    If that still fails then ensure that your cardionality of your columns is as low as possible, which will ensure that you get the best compression.
