Dynamic Data Source

Hi,

 

I am using an Excel file stored on Sharepoint site and I would like to keep the folder dynamic.

It currently hits an error during data refresh on Power BI Service.

 

Here is my code:

strFolder = TblFolder{0}[Data Folder],
Source = Excel.Workbook(Web.Contents(strFolder & "Alibaba.xlsm"), null, true),

 

Appreciate your help.

You can create a query parameter with foldernames. Then apply the parameter to code, make the str folder = the parameter name (Folder Name in the example). Something like:

 

strFolder = TblFolder{0}[Folder Name]

Source = Excel.Workbook(Web.Contents(strFolder & "Alibaba.xlsm"), null, true),
