How do I see which file Power BI is loading tables from?

I am colloborating with multiple people on the same Power BI report which already has numerous tables loaded in from multiple different excel files. When I click on the Table icon I can see all the right hand side. How do I verify what the data source is for each one? Under "Edit Queries" there is an option called "Data source settings" but it only lists all the excel files but does not tell me which tables each data source is associated with.

@heyydrien in power query click (ie home tab/edit queries/edit queries) click  on the table and then look at the source on the right, this is usually the first step in power query, are you sure you are in power query, data source settings is the connnection information not the metadata of the table source

@heyydrien,

 

By the way, you may view the entire text for a query through the Advanced Editor.
