Can connect to Sharepoint Folder, but don't see my file

Hi, 

 

I've connected to Get Data > Sharepoint folder, can see many of our files - but not the one I'm looking for.  

 

I enter the URL in this format:

 

https://mycompany.sharepoint.com

 

The actual URL of my file is something like:


https://mycompany.sharepoint.com/:x:/r/teams/PaymentAnalysisReportReviews/_layouts/15/Doc.aspx?sourc......

Am I feeding Get Data > Sharepoint the wrong URL? 

 

I've also tried Get Data > Web, but then start running into authentication errors - and searching on those leads down a black hole of PBI-Sharepoint issues.  I'm able to authenticate with Get Data > Sharepoint Folder so...want to try to figure out that route first. 

Thanks!

Re: Can connect to Sharepoint Folder, but don't see my file

Thanks!  The instructions from that link worked. 

 

What helped was "Clicking on the Home in the left navigation will take you to the home location of the SharePoint site. " - and using *that* URL. 

 

So Get Data > Sharepoint Folder, then feeding it, in my case, a URL like this: 

 

https://MyCompany.sharepoint.com/teams/PaymentAnalysisReportReviews
