Re: Sharepoint files list adds error row that I can't remove

Hi, sorry no fix found yet. I load files individually as a workaround.

Re: Sharepoint files list adds error row that I can't remove

I just created this blog post on merging Excel files for another situation. Have a look as it may point out some potential alternatives for this issue. https://marqueeinsights.com/how-to-merge-multiple-excel-files-with-power-bi/

 

Hope this helps.

Re: Sharepoint files list adds error row that I can't remove

Hi, thanks but if you read carefully what I posted, the problem I'm having is using Sharepoint.Contents in M to list the files *under another user's account* .... and getting some kind of permissions error that *can't be filtered out* using the normal "remove errors" step. This non-removable error prevents me from going any further to filter the list and combine files like your video shows.

Re: Sharepoint files list adds error row that I can't remove

I suspect this is a security trimming behavior issue in SharePoint API, not Power BI itself. All access is site specific, so if you have a site and a subsite, that's two different queries and the account with data access has to have Reader rights in SharePoint to access the content within each site. If you are trying to do this over the old My Sites, that's likely a big question mark since I don't know anyone still using My Sites personally.
