Hi @j_hob ,

By my tests, you could get the shared folder from OneDrive in Power BI Desktop with the steps below.

1. Get Data>>Folder

2. Select the Folder in OneDrive.

3. Click ok, you will see the files in the folder.

If you still need help, please feel free to ask.

Thank you but I have already tried this.  I needed a solution that I could implement where the data is automatically updated in Power BI using one drive.  If I connect this way the automatic updated doesn't work
