I try Get Data for a basic custom entity with 4 text columns, the wizard works perfectly until the start of importing then i get this error: -
Load to Common Data Service failed. Details: An error occurred while validating input parameters: Microsoft.OData.ODataException: Does not support untyped value in non-open type.

I found a resolution that I would like to share, although I don't think this error should exist but here is the reason and how to eliminate.
The reason of this error is that if I create an entity and name as COUNTRY, Name of the primary field cannot be also called COUNTRY. Simple.
If I call the primary field anything else, such as COUNTRY NAME, then power query works perfectly.
Thanks for reporting this. We will introduce an additional validation rule that indicates that it's not possible to create an entity if it has a field with the same name as the entity itself.
I am getting the same error with a different Primary name vs the entity name. I am training in powerapps and an admitted newbie but I have followed the instructions but I am unable to imort my data.
