Hi @SP,

 

You can get the Excel link in Teams follow this article

Now you get the link, please remove ?web=1 string at the end of the link as mentioned in the article. 

 

Open the original report in Power BI desktop, go to Query Editor-> Advanced Editor, modify the source step with below: 

 

Source = Excel.Workbook(Web.Contents("<URL you got from above steps>"), null, true),

Hi Qiuyun,

 

After I amend the file path in the query editor page, Power BI returns me with this error: 

 

"Expression.Error: Access to the resource is forbidden." 

 

Do you know what might be the cause and how to resolve it?

 

Cheers,

Kev

Hi @v-qiuyu-msft,

 

Thanks for your response.

But i checked with MS support team and they responded with belwo response:

 

"

As discussed over the call, Microsoft Teams is not a default connector from Power BI desktop , We will be passing this to Product development for feature enhancement. As an Work Around you can use  SharePoint and different SharePoint   connectors are available in Power BI desktop."

 

So i have moved my excel file to SharePoint. But will surely try yoru suggestion as well.

 

 

Thanks,

Hi @SP,

 

Yes there indeed isn't a specific Microsoft Team connector in Power BI desktop. But as I suggested before, you can use web data source to get data.
