Excel Workbook OneDrive Refresh

I have a few Excel workbooks published to a Power BI workspace which reside on a OneDrive for Business / Sharepoint folder. They are scheduled to refresh daily (via an Enterprise gateway). Every day they refresh successfully. However, as of yesterday they started showing warning icons (as if the refresh has failed). When I look at the Refresh history there are two tabs. One tab says Scheduled and the other tab says OneDrive. When I look at the Scheduled tab all of the instances show as successful/completed. However, on the OneDrive tab the status shows as Failed. I assume this is what is generating the warning icon.

 

Why would the OneDrive "part" (only) suddenly stop working? How do I fix it? And what does a failure on the OneDrive tab actually mean? Thank you.

@robarivas ,

 

Currently, power bi autorefresh doesn't support refresh folder, please use file(xls, csv) instead.

Re: Excel Workbook OneDrive Refresh

One or more of the following 3 things fixed the problem for me:

 

1) Addressing any Formula Firewall errors that may exist in your queries.

2) Completely removing the workbook from the Power BI Service and then reconnecting it back in

3) Eliminate any queries that reference worksheets within the same workbook. (So move that sheet to a different workbook if you need the query).
