Error trying to access SharePoint List from Power Query

When trying to pull data from a SharePoint List Data Source, using the Microsoft Online Services ID, you may see the following output in your query:


DataFormat.Error: OData: The given URL neither points to an OData Service or a feed: ‘<URL>&lc=1033&id=500046&guests=1’.

You may also see an error saying “The user was not authorized”.


You may see one of these errors when you do not select “Keep me signed in” when logging into O365.


After putting the check in “Keep me signed in”, you should then see the proper output.

    We are using the desktop version of Office so we don't connect in the same manner as Office 365 users. Any ideas of how to fix the problem for the desktop users of Office 2013?
