Excel 2016 Preview and On-Prem SQL Server data refresh issue

HI,

 

I just created a new model on Excel 2016 using power Query. After I uploaded the Excel file to Power BI web app it said "You cannot schedule refresh for this dataset because it gets data from sources that currently don’t support refresh. Learn more about data sources that currently support refresh."

Actually, I'm surprised, why it is not supprted when the exact same file created on Excel 2013 works perfectly?

 

Any explanation would be appreciated.

Can you please check if your workbook have at least one Power Pivot data connection.

 

As Office2016 is still in CTP (preview mode), MS development team are working to enable this feature.

FYI Excel Data Models compatibility.
