Power BI setup

Dear community members,


I work as a volunteer at a housing association. For the housing association I manage the IT and I help to provide insight into certain data. The data is stored in flat excel files on our onedrive environment. Everything in flat tables. The data hardly changes. I want to connect to these excel files with Power Bi. I go to for this and log in with the administrator account, but now it doesn't seem to be possible to add new excel source files from one drive. I get the following message:

Something went wrong Error configuring the selected file Please try again later or contact support.
Please provide the following information when contacting support.

Yesterday everything worked, but now it doesn't seem to work anymore. I'd love to hear a solution.
