Excel Dataset from One Drive for Business not refreshing, no error message

I've only been using Power BI for a few days, but up until now I had no issues refreshing my datasets. I am using the browser version of Power BI, and I am linking my excel spreadsheets through One Drive for business.

 

However, when I try refreshing any data set now, a pop-up that says "refreshing" runs for a few seconds and then abruptly disappears. The data set does not refresh, and I get no error message. The refresh attempt also does not show up in the refresh history.

 

None of the other solutions I saw on here are applicable because I all of them had some sort of error. The refresh worked fine 2 hours ago, and all I did after that is share it with 2 people. I did not change any settings.

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

HI @marcinkranz,

 

Did this file connect to other data source? Where are you host this file? I think it may related to azure data service.

Re: Excel Dataset from One Drive for Business not refreshing, no error message

It is not linked to any other data source. The spreadsheet is entirely self-contained. It is in a sharepoint folder in One Drive for Business. I'm not sure where it is hosted.

 

If it is hosted in azure and related to the azure data service, is there a way to test or troubleshoot that?

Since there are not enough detail information about your issue, can you please use fiddler trace refresh operation and share logs here?
