Editing Excel sheet from outside - affect the app?

Hello all,

I have a question regarding the datasource linked to PowerApps.

I have an Excel table used as datasource, which is uploaded in OneDrive (so the app has connection to onedrive and there to the Excel table). If I edit the Excel directly from OneDrive, how does that affect the app? Does it or not? If it does, would I need to delete the connection and re connect? Or nothing at all?

Hi @FelipeCaru,

 

You will need to refresh the data source. You can do this manually by opening the data source list (View > Data sources) and clicking "Refresh" in the "..." options for the specific data source. You can also do this in the app with the "Refresh" function (e.g. "Refresh(Table1)", where "Table1" is the name of the data source.

@SpencerLynn so in the end if the table is modified from OneDrive, always have to refres the source?

Good to know, thank you (:
