Change Datasource from OneDrive for Business Excel Table to Sharepoint List

Hi,

 

I have a simple working 'face/phonebook' PowerApp based on Data source OneDrive for Business Excel Table.

To use this app in production i will use a Sharepoint list instead of the Excel Table - so i converted the Table into Sharepoint List using this microsoft instruction Export an Excel table to Sharepoint  

 

The column names in the Table remained the same

 

Question:

How to convert this data source in powerapps studio ? 

I added the Sharepoint list and deleted the ODfB Excel data source. Unfortunately I got 30 Errors (red crosses (broken links )).

Is there a smart way to Manage the Datasource  by reconnecting to the new source? What is the right approach ?

 

Many thanks

Unfortunately, when you change names of datasources like that, you will need to revisit the formulas with errors and change the name directly.  There is no "clean" way to do this other than that.

 

I hope this is helpful for you.
