Sharing Data Between Call Backs Time to Complete Issue

Here is a snippet of my code and the last few lines of the output dialogue. I am using Example 1 from Part 5. Sharing Data Between Callbacks | Dash for Python Documentation | Plotly.

When I run the code below, I get that error message, but then it finally ends up working and creating the data table after about 1-2 minutes.

Now If I remove the params = [value] part of my sql query and just hard key in the company_code instead of passing it in as a parameter via a drop down , I still get that same error message below, but it eventually ends up working and creating the data table in less than 10 seconds instead of 1-2 minutes.

Any ideas why passing the parameter in would make it take so much longer to run?

    Output('intermediate-value', 'children'), 
    [Input('submit-button', 'n_clicks')],
    [State('drop-down, 'value')])
def clean_data(n_clicks, value):
    if n_clicks:
        df = pd.read_sql_query("""SELECT data FROM sql_view
        WHERE x is NOT NULL and company_code = ?
        and date between '2/1/20' and '2/15/20' """, cnxn, params = [value])

return df.to_json(date_format='iso', orient='split')

@app.callback(Output('table1', 'children'), [Input('intermediate-value', 'children')])
def update_graph(jsonified_cleaned_data):
    dff = pd.read_json(jsonified_cleaned_data, orient='split')
    data = dff.to_dict('rows')
    columns =  [{"name": i, "id": i,} for i in (dff.columns)]
    return dt.DataTable(data=data, columns=columns)

File "C:\Users\me\Anaconda3\lib\site-packages\pandas\io\", line 232, in get_filepath_or_buffer
    raise ValueError(msg.format(_type=type(filepath_or_buffer)))
ValueError: Invalid file path or buffer object type: <class 'NoneType'> - - [11/Jun/2020 18:51:17] "POST /_dash-update-component HTTP/1.1" 500 -

I have the same error when reading from a hidden Div a json.

I write to it:

nutrients_json = nutrients_df.to_json(date_format='iso', orient='split')

I send it to a dcc.Store on a callback return statement,
Then I try to read it in a chained callback:

            #add to this
            nutrients_totals_df = pd.read_json(total_nutrients_json, orient='split')

The dcc.Store looks like this at the top of my layout:

                id="hidden-nutrients-df", storage_type='session'


I am having the exact same issue. Did anyone manage to solve it?
