sharepoint folder empty

Trying to load files from Sharepoint  in Power Bi Desktop and having issues. Basically, I'm puttting an Excel file in the app workspace document library. When connecting to this Sharepoint site in Power BI Desktop (Sharepoint folder source), I'm not seeing any files.

 

I tried with another app workspaces and it's working fine.

 

Note that I'm admin of both groups.

 

Any ideas where to look?

 

Thanks

Re: sharepoint folder empty

It's working now. Don't ask me how and why though. Tested it on my laptop with another Sharepoint site and it was working. Tried it a couple of times with this one without any success. Another user tried it with success. Now I'm trying it this morning and it's working...

@Eric_Sergerie,

I am unable to reproduce your issue, do you use February update of Power BI Desktop? Could you please input the similar URL as below in Web entry of Power BI Desktop and check if you can connect to Excel file?
