"An error occurred on the server. Server Response: Not a valid Connector Error Response" Cannot Connect to azure

Trying to connect to azure database. Can connect, but I cannot run a simple query. My entire app will not work. Everything worked fine yesterday and no changes were made. 


Hi Rebeccak,


The following data types cannot be used as query option predicates:

  • date
  • datetime
  • datetime2
  • smalldatetime

This is not a new limitation and has always been the case. Please refer to known limitations here:


I will be happy to look if you have a specific clientRequestId/connectionId to explain why it may have worked previously.


Hi @Rebeccak 


This doesn't really answer your question as to why this worked before, but for more complex sql scenarios, you can use Flow to run SQL queries and return the data to PowerApps

Thanks.  I have read through the documentation. Just weird that it has worked for months and months and now doesn't.  In the documentation it says the <> and = should not work either with the Date field, but they do. Everything worked great until right after the new powerapps release. 

Thank you. I will have to look into this. I can't collect years and years of data into the powerapp. I appreciate your responses.
