Connect to OneDrive folder instead of specific files

Hi, 

 

I am trying to connect to my OneDrive folder (https://company-my.sharepoint.com/personal/name_company_com) with no luck.  

 

Get Data -> SharePoint Folder

 

I sign in with the Microsoft Account, but end up getting the below error message.

 

But if I try Get Data -. SharePoint list , I am able to connect but it returns data that doesn't make sense to me.

 

Appreciate any help.

Thank You, 

Sree

Hi @sreeragtg,

 

You want to connect to SharePoint Folder rather than OneDrive Folder, right? If so, please choose SharePoint Folder data connector and enter the SharePoint site URL instead of the complete folder path, similar to:

https://microsoft.sharepoint.com/sitename/subsitename

 

Besides, from this link:

Now that we’re in, we’ll be able to see all of the files from all of the folders that we have access to in that specific site. This might be a pretty long list, so let’s do some filtering on the “Folder Path” column and select the folder where your data is being stored so you only get the files from it.

 

Best regards,

Hi Yuliana, 

 

Thank You for the reply.

 

When you say SharePoint site URL, is it not the same as what I have in my initial post? 

 

I tried the method based on the link provided. One difference what I find there is: I am not seeing Organizational account to log in, only Anonymous, Windows and Microsoft. Also, I am getting a different error when I use this method. So I didn't reach the stage where I could select the folder.

 

Kindly assist.

Hi @sreeragtg,

 

Can you sign in to SharePoint site successfully with current account?
