Power BI thinks my model uses on-premise data sources

Hi,

 

I created a model with Power BI desktop. 

Originally the model had a local file as its source, but now it's based on a service (salesforce) with zero references to local files (at least that I can see).

 

When I try to schedule a refresh I get this message:

This dataset contains on-premises data sources. To schedule data refresh, try Power BI Pro for 60 days, or contact your Office 365 tenant administrator to purchase Power BI Pro

 

 

One option I have is to recreate the model for the start and base it on the service. I made a small test and found it works. However, my real model has many things in it and recreating everything from scrach will take a considrable about of time.

 

Is there a way to fix whatever causes Power BI to think the model still contains local files?

 

Thanks,

T

Delete your date set from Power BI Service completely.  In Power BI Desktop, go to File | Options and Settings | Data sources and delete the old local file data source.

 

Save and upload, should be OK.

Re: Power BI thinks my model uses on-premise data sources

Hi,

 

Thanks for replying.

 

I cleaned the "My Workspace" so that it's empty now. On the desktop I went to the data sources options and there're no local file data sources.

I then published the model again but still the services is saying I have on-premise source.

 

Do you have other ideas?

 

Thanks,

T

Crazy thought, try saving as or otherwise renaming your PBIX file and then uploading.
