Issue with MS Access datasource


When I refresh dataset in Power BI using enterprise gateway with MS Access datasource I got the following error message:



When de user is administrator on machine where is enterprise gateway I don't have this issue.


What permission for user is it needed to work fine?

Hi @tiagosell ,


What is the error message? Could you translate it into English? Please add users into Gateway Administrator for a test.

I added the user into Gateway Administrator but I got the same error (bellow).


OBS1: Enterprise Gateway and MS Access database file are in same server.


OBS2: User has full control permission on file.

OBS3: when the user is administrator on Enterprise Gateway server we don't have this issue.
