Analyze Excel error



I have changed the onedrive folder which feeds the .pbix from one user to another (the former left the organization). The thing is that end users have their reports built on an excel file using the Analyzer in Excel Feature, and so after changing the owner of the folder, they can't use it anymore. Is there a way to resolve this issue? or should they build everything from scratch?


Thks in advance

Hi, @Ivanangelino 


It’s my pleasure to answer for you.

Are you unable to open the PBIX file? or the excel file?

Try to log into Power BI with the account that has permission,change the path of the new data source in the pbix file.

If it doesn’t solve your problem, please feel free to ask me.


Best Regards

Janey Guo
