Hi, @Naveen59 

Gateway can be seen as a bridge between the cloud and on-premises data transfer process.

If your data source is in the cloud, data transfer with PowerBI Service does not require a gateway.

Since your database is local, configuring the gateway is necessary. You can consider migrating data to Microsoft Azure SQL Database.

Hi @Naveen59 

If your Excel data is on a web based repository, OneDrive, SharePoint or Teams for example you won't need a Gateway to get to that data. However MySQL Database requires a Gateway. If your Dataset mixes MySQL and Excel data you'll need a Gateway.

See: Use OneDrive for Business links in Power BI Desktop - Power BI | Microsoft Learn

and Power Query MySQL database connector - Power Query | Microsoft Learn

Hope this helps

If your excel dataset resides in workspace onedrive , or sharepoint online. It whould not need any gateway at all.
