Query Lookup Column Threshold

Error Message: "The requested operation is invalid. Server Response: The query cannot be completed because the number of lookup columns it contains exceeds the lookup column threshold enforced by the administrator"

 

Upon searching the above error message in this community forum you get about 5 posts for people looking for help on the topic. The solution options from those posts using Power Apps are disappointing where the best solution is to use another product, Power Automate, to build up a collection of SharePoint data to use. A helpful blog post, however this adds needless complexity.

Upon searching the ideas forums, you will find no less than 4 posts asking for a fix which Power Automate has already developed; "Point at a SharePoint VIEW with less lookup columns"

Any updates on this? I can only find one workaround (using Flow) and I cannot find anyone who's managed to get that to work.

 

Can we expect a fix in PA - this year? Or not?

@Daryl_K I can not get the work-around in flow to work either. 

Please take the request to the Power BI team too.   Much of my work on linking in Sharepoint list data would be very much simplified if I could get a view rather than the whole table with all linked tables, calculated columns, lookups on people and workflows and ad Nauseum.

 

It seems very reasonable for not only a Sharepoint List connector but also a Sharepoint List View connector to exist.   In 90% of the usage of Sharepoint tables, that would be the preferred access method, be it for Power BI, Flow, Power Apps et al.   Especially as we can then reduce the data transmission and management to what was actually wanted.

Any idea when this would be resolved ?  

I think we can split the list into several lists
