    Hi All,

    Two weeks ago I was trying to use a R Script in Power BI Desktop that import data from a PDF File, and I got this error "Object reference not set to an instance of an object. Details DataSourceKind=R".

    It tooks me 2 days to figure out that this problem was issued because the R Studio's platform version was different from the Power BI Desktop. RStudio was in 64bits and PBI Desktop was on32bits.

    To solve the issue I just installed the PBI Desktop app in 64bits.

    hope this will help if somone else get the same issue.

    Great call!

    Also, consider the limitations of using R within Power BI.

    Thank you
