Connecting paginated reports in power bi report builder to sharepoint file

Hi everyone,

 

I've been trying to look for a way to connect power bi report builder to an xlsx (excel) file i have in sharepoint, but i cant find any documentation supporting this. If someone could help me connect that would be amazing.

 

Thanks!

You can follow the steps: SQLCircuit: SSRS - How to create a report using Excel as a data source
