Power BI Online app - overwrite existing dataset

Hello,

 

I have a MAC so cannot use Power BI desktop, therefore I am limited as to what I can do in Power BI online App.

 

Does anyone know of a way to overwrite an exisiting dataset in the online version? I entered data via: Create / Paste or manually enter data, however I cannot seem to find a way to update the exisiting data with up to date data.

 

Thanks

 

Jenny

Hi @Jenny_Sommet ,

 

We cannot change data source in power bi service/power bi mobile app. We can change it in power bi desktop and then republish to power bi service.

 

This is the article about changing your existing data source.

The article lists the methods in two cases. Depending on the type of data source you want to replace – you can use one of the below approaches.
1.Replace data source using the same connector
2.Use different data source connector – as data sources are completely different.

 

Best Regards,

Stephen Tao
