I had been importing an Airtable in to Power BI, only needing it every few months, but now am unable to refresh.  It appears that API_KEYS have been depreciated as of February and I'm unable to find a resource for how to reestablish the connection.

Does anyone have reliable M code I can drop in the advanced editor to get my tables back?

I appreciate the assistance. 

For what it is worth, this is the entirety of the existing M that I had been using.  It now says that it can't authenticate with current credentials.  I have set it to anonymous, but to no avail. 


let Pagination = List.Skip(List.Generate( () => [Last_Key = "init", Counter=0],

each [Last_Key] <> null,

each [

Last_Key = try if [Counter]<1 then ""


[WebCall][Value][offset] otherwise null,

WebCall = try if [Counter]<1







Counter = [Counter]+1


each [WebCall]

Hmm, you're using the `api_key` param in your call and that's been deprecated I'm afraid.  You're going to need to use a personal access token instead of an API key, and Airtable has a guide on use them here:

You'll then need to modify your code so that you do a GET request for the data instead, and include the token in the header
