Hi @AkashTiwari2124 ,

You can get the answer to your question from the following official documentation.

Connect to Analysis Services tabular data in Power BI Desktop

Question: If I created a live connection, can I connect to another data source in the same Power BI Desktop file?

Answer: No. You can't explore live data and connect to another type of data source in the same file. If you’ve already imported data or connected to a different data source in a Power BI Desktop file, you need to create a new file to explore live.


In addition, this blog below explains what live connection is and how it works, and you can get more information about live connection from it.
