Enter data to dataflow

Hello, I add new dataflow on pbi website. There I see excel file with data and I saved it. When I want to get this data in PBI desktop, I have blank table with no data.

I tried refresh save into another workspace, with same result - no date in the table.

Any idea, where is problem?

Hi Tomas, 

Your question isn't clear enough. 
what is the data source from which the dataflow is getting the data? is it an excel file?
did you refresh the dataflow after you created it?

Hi, @tomasmartinek 


You may refresh the dataflow, connect the dataflow from Power BI Desktop and click 'Refresh' in Power BI Desktop. 
Before Refresh:



After Refresh:



Most dataflows reside in the Power BI service tenant. However, Power BI Desktop users cannot access dataflows that are stored in Azure Data Lake Storage Gen2 account, unless they are the owner of the dataflow, or they have been explicitly authorized to the dataflow’s CDM folder. To resolve this issue, the user must be granted reader permissions to the CDM Folder and its files.


For further information, I'd like to suggest you refer to the document .


Best Regards
