Power BI online refresh - 'Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0' error
I'm getting this error when trying to refresh Power BI dataset online (scheduled and manual refresh):
Excel Workbook: The 'Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0' provider is not registered on the local machine. The 64-bit version of the Access Database Engine 2010 Access Database Engine OLEDB provider may be required to read this type of file. To download the client software, visit the following site: https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=285987.
In Power BI Desktop everything is working fine. The source data is located at sharepoint online and it's .xlsb file with few tabs (4 tables taken from 4 tabs in this file).
it hasn't been resolved on my side. I noticed the cause in this particular case is the source file format - I use .xlsb file. When I save it as .xlsm or .xlsx it's working good, but it's not the satisfying solution for me.
I also have the same issue in another project when using .xls or .accdb source files. Everything is refreshing with no issues on desktop (Access Database Engine installed) but refresh online returns this error.
I'd like to check if there is any recommended solution to this issue, other than changing the file format of the data source.
I am facing the same problem with refreshing my dataset through Power BI Service, while the required Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0 provider is already installed on my machine (the same version as Power BI Desktop and all Office apps), and everything works fine in Power BI Desktop.
