Workbooks - All Excel Online Reports throw error when linked to PBI but not when accessed direct

we see a strange behaviour of app  on opening "linked" excel workbooks,

Suddenly, a few month ago, all excel files uploaded to PBI workspaces stopped working and throw now an error. this is also the case even for "empty" excelfiles (without dataconnections...).

Rendering still  works for existing and new uploaded excel files opened from their O365 Business Onedrive/SharePoint directly!
But if you use "get data">From files>Onedrive.." in to "link" the excel file it throws following error (show error by F12 in browser):


Cross-Origin Read Blocking (CORB) blocked cross-origin response with MOME type text/plan. See for mor details


We tried with different browsers and machines, always with the same i assume that is a tenant-specific and not a browers-specific error? Anyone with same experience? Again, opening the excel workbooks directly from their origin location works without any issues in Excel Online

Re: Workbooks - All Excel Online Reports throw error when linked to PBI but not when accessed direct

Hi @jjuelke,


By my test with "get data">From files>Onedrive/SharePoint>select the excel file>import/upload, everything works as expected.


Could you get the workbook in "My workspace" successfully?
