Excel Connection Not Populating PowerApp

Here's a noob question.  When I attempt to make a connection the fields do not populate in PowerApps and the data cards are missing. How do I get Excel to populate PowerApp with data?  

Before I start the PowerApp connection process, I always close the Excel spreadsheet on my PC and in OneDrive.  I have formatted the spreadsheet as a table and added a separate tab for drop downs.

This is all I get.  I have tried refreshing the connection and closing the PowerApp and starting again.  I am sure there is something simple that I am not doing, but I need help figuring out what it is.  Thanks!

The ITEMS property in the gallery is:

 

SortByColumns(Search([@MonitoringList], TextSearchBox1.Text, "Boiler1_x0020_Pressure","Boiler2_x0020_Pressure","Comments"), "Boiler1_x0020_Pressure", If(SortDescending1, Descending, Ascending))

 

Thank you for your assistance.

Yes.  But now the app is not populating back to the Excel spreadsheet.
