Re: August PowerBI Desktop no longer recognise my excel datafiles

Hi @malcolmwun,

 

By my tests with Power BI Desktop Version: 2.61.5192.541 64-bit (August 2018), I cannot reproduce your issue.

 

Do you have this issue only for this specific excel file or all your excel file?

 

You could have a try with my attached excel file to check if you still have this issue.

 

In additon, you could have a reference of this similar thread.

 

Best Regards,

Cherry
