Azure Blob Storage - Data not loading

Hi Everyone,

I have a azure blob storage container which hosts by csv file. The size of the file is above 7 GB.
When I try to connect to the azure blob storage from PBI desktop using SAS token, after a point the data loading gets aborted and throws me a error as shown in the screenshot.

I came to know that it will not allow me to import data more than 2.6 gb.

Can you pls guide me how can I connect to the such a large data placed inside the azure blob storage.
Is there any workaround! or way to do this.

Its very urgent. Please team guide me in this regard.

Thanks & Regards,
Hari G

Hi Team,

I was able to resolve this issue.

I want to share a couple of thoughts with the community here.

It is always better to use a query foldable data source like sql etc. By query foldable I mean the filtration everything should happen at the database end like sql rather than having a Flat file in a storage like azure blob.

If the file size is too huge better not go for static options like these blobs

There prob of 2.6gb limit is not true. I think we can hold till 10 gb as per your license.

There are a few more but i think this would give a rough idea.

Thanks & Regards,
