Using Excel File as a Datasource

Hi, 

 

I have an Excel file on which i want to create a report and this excel will be updated from time to time, i want the data in the report to refresh also.

Which is the best approach in this case? Put the file on Power BI Service, on SharePoint, etc?

 

Thank you,

Ioana

Hi @avramioana ,

You could refer to NickNg278's solution to configure a gateway, also you could put your files on Sharepint or OneDrive, you do not need to configure a gateway for your files:
