Re: Lab 1 challenge

Hi @Amyinformatics 


If you’re importing data from Access database to Power BI Online Service, it’s not supported currently.


If you’re using desktop, you can connect to Access database from Power BI Desktop by using “Get data>More>Database>Access database” option.

Please refer to the official document for trouble shooting when you connecting the access via desktop:
