Excel tables uploaded as dataset not showing in power bi cloud fields

Hello,

When uploading three excel tables directly to power bi cloud service, my tables are being converted into generic "Table 1" and "Table 2" in the fields section. I have the datasets designed in excel for the best use when creating dashboards. Not sure how to resolve it?

 

Thanks in advance for any direction! An initial search of this forum, I couldn't find a similar challenge/solution.

I have solved this issue, sharing it as FYI for others. I had been using excel power query to create one of the tables, and power bi cloud could not use that sheet. Unfortunately, this adds some additional manual data entry, hopefully, this will be resolved in a future release. Take away is, tables from excel that have been created via power query are not compatible with power bi cloud.
