How to change data source to another Excel file

I have created a Powerapps from Excel which is working great.

Now I have need to duplicate this Powerapps which is now successful.

However, the new Powerapps still pointing to the same Excel file.

I have duplicated the Excel file too on OneDrive for Business.

Then I found I cannot point to this new Excel file.

How to do this ? Please help. Adding Datasource I found I can only add connection to OneDrive Business but cannot specify which Excel to connect. Help...

 

Thanks

Hi @hkbeer2 

 

The excel file must contain a table so that PowerApps can connect to it

 

In your new App, remove the data connection from previous App, add new connection to excel in one drive for business, and select the table within the excel file

Hi @hkbeer2 

 

Do you firstly format the Excel data as a table?
