Hi @Ramole ,

I suggest you lodge a Support Ticket with Microsoft.

Also have you tried doing this on a different browser?

@Ramole ,

Have you tried the following

  • Save As to the local drive and then try to open it by browsing to it and saving as another name. 
  • Export as a package and then import
  • Do both the above but with a different user account
  • Same, but in a different environment

 

Hi @WarrenBelz 

 

When i try to export this what comes up Could not find connection '7fa1445630834fce81dd659bc1aed7d6' for API 'shared_onedriveforbusiness'.

@Ramole ,

Is this an Excel backend?

SharePoint

@Ramole ,

I am not sure this helps, but the error is looking for a OneDrive for business connection, and an Excel file data source would normally be the reason for this.

Also I now realise Save As will not work as you have to open it first.

With Microsoft support, surely if an app is working, they should be able to retrieve the code?

Also you have mentioned you have previous versions - have you tried restoring any of these and see if they export?

This is only helpful for the future, but I export apps after every change and catalogue them both in a SharePoint Library and off-cloud.

Thanks @Ramole ,

I have never struck the problem, but do recall something about authoring versions on a post some time ago.

It would also be good to document how to do this (it is in the Account settings) once the app is closed (or also when the app is open if you can open it)
