Access data on Box.Com

Is there a way to access excel files that are uploaded to a Box.com account?  If not, any other suggestions where such data could be stored and easily accessed by PowerBI?  Thanks in advance!

Hi @Razorbx13 ,

 

It seems it's not supported to direct connect box.com through Power BI. I checked a few topics and the only thing I found that might be helpful was below:

Perhaps you could use the "Direct Link" (direct download link) feature. It is not available for free personal box.com accounts. You can read more here: https://support.box.com/hc/en-us/articles/360043697554-Configuring-Individual-Shared-Link-Settings.

You may consider to submit this as an idea.
