Can't schedule refresh due to cannot find file with a file error handling

I've published a PowerBI file that is working on my desktop refreshing the data etc. but when i published it's not letting me refresh because it can't find the files.


I'm getting my files from a folder path (csv) and from a database. The issue is, i've already accounted the missing files with a file error handler ,that if a file is missing or is not present on a folder, it will get data from a table. which is working fine if i do it on desktop. (see below)



So trying to refresh will give me an error on the workspace Dataset settings. Has anyone encountered this issue?
any suggestions to resolve this?

thank you

My guess is that the CSV file is not present in/accessible from your gateway machine.

You need to either install gateway on the machine where your CSV file is located or keep your CSV file in a shared drive so that the gateway can connect to your source file.
