When I try to add a dataflow from an excel file the next button is greyed out and the autorization kind is anonymous which it should be and my only option. I have found through testing that power bi does not allow a letter to be in the beginning of the filepath and I don't understand the criteria they want. My filepath looks like this: C:\Users\Name\Folder\file.xlsx what am I doing wrong? I have already tried deleting the C: and C:\ before the path but it gives me a "path is invalid" message.

We don't use onedrive but there isn't an option for adding a link for onedrive. I tried adding the onedrive link to the excel option but I am getting error messages and same with adding the link to the sharepoint option.
This would bring me back to original problem where pasting in the local file path ex: C:\Users\Name\Folder\file.xlsx gives me no option to choose a gateway or authentication method. I assume I need to set up a gateway?
