Editing Common Data Model inExcel never loads

I have data corresponding to my entities in the Common Data Model I am using in my powerapp. However, if I want to edit them I need to open them in Excel. Whenever I want to open them in Excel Online, the Microsoft Powerapps Office Add-in keeps loading and never ends. The message says Verifying authentication...

What could be the source of this? Is there any other way of editing the data in CMD?

Re: Editing Common Data Model inExcel never loads

Hi Gpiffaretti,


Thanks for reporting. When I opened the Excel with Excel Online, I got the same issue. I signed in with my credentials, but got the message “Verifying authentication….”, and it never ends.


This add-in requires one of the following applications:
>Excel 2016 or later
>Excel Online


If you have Excel 2016 or later, please try to open it with Excel 2016. I am always using Excel 2016, it works properly with no error.


I will try to collect and report this issue from my side and involve someone who is familiar with this issue to take a further investigation on it.


Best regards,
Mabel Mao
