Access to Resource forbidden when using web content to connect to a sharepoint excel file

Hello,

 

In our Company, we store many excel files on SharePoint folders. I use the web option from Get data to put in the excel file link. Under one particular folder, all the links to excel files work except for one of them which keeps giving the error message Details: "Access to the resource is forbidden.". I have all the permissions on the SharePoint necessary for me to edit and read the excel files on the SharePoint

 

I do not know what is causing this issue. The excel file is checked in and has no particular issue, can there be any other issue that I am not seeing here

@arv993 ,

 

This issue should be caused by web connector. Please use sharepoint folder connector instead of web connector and check if this issue persists.
