Keep relationship on data refresh

Hi

Is there any way through which we can keep the manually created relationships even after the data refresh?

 

The format of data source we are using is excel.

We have successfully created the report structure for an excel file.

When we tried to import a new excel in the same format (same column headers), all the relationships that we manually created earlier are getting deleted.

 

Do anyone have any idea on how to accomplish this?

Thank you in advance.

Turn off automatically detect relationships. Go to File | Options and settings and under Current File, Data Load uncheck all the relationship stuff.

I've tried doing that. It's not working.

Is the data changing in some way that would prevent these relationships? Like duplicates being added on the 1 side of a 1:n relationship for instance?

@KHorseman No duplicates are being added to any side of relationships. All relationships created are 1:1 and are created manually.
