Deleted Excel Dataset


I have a synoptic panel running perfectly fine, pulling data from an Excel sheet we keep on OneDrive. We update it regularly etc.

My colleague accidently deleted the excel sheet and I have no backup. 

I can however download the excel sheet/dataset from PowerBi.

How can I reconnect my dashboard to this excel sheet? Any suggestions? Thanks

Re: Deleted Excel Dataset

Hi @Lorcs

Did you connect to excel file on OneDrive from Power BI Service?

I'm afraid it is not possible to reconnect a dataset for Power BI Service.

You could vote an similar idea here.

Allow PowerBI Datasets to Reconnect to data sources


Best Regards
