Change Data Source After Publishing to PowerBi.com?

I created a report using Power BI Desktop and used a local excel workbook as the data source. I have published it to PowerBi.com, but now would like to connect it to a copy of the same Excel workbook that is now in OneDrive Business. Is that possible? If so, could someone lead me in the direction to do that?

Re: Change Data Source After Publishing to PowerBi.com?

Hi @SilhouetteBS  ,

 You need to change the query to get data from the onedrive excel and then upload/replace the pbix file in service.

You must change the source from  excel  to from web.

 

I have written a post on how to write the correct url that is accepted by powerquery.

Also there are some post in the community that also have instruction on how to do it..
