Excel file, datasource in a Team Site?

I try but can't place a Excel file in a Team Site, or Group, to use with Powerapps. Is it possible or I'm I doing something wrong?

 

I want to use the Team Site so that all the members can access the app, and the file.

I found out that it isn't possible to store a Excel file in a Team Site or Group.

Hi OlaH,

 

Are you trying to upload Excel file to a Team site via PowerApps?

 

If yes, I am afraid that it is not possible currently.

 

There is a similar request on PowerApps Ideas Forum, please consider to vote the idea at here:

Hi Mable Mao

and thank you for your reply.

 

No, the Excel file is the datasource for an app. I want to place in a Team Site for easy sharing to the members in that group.

Isn't a Group or a Team Site open so it can be used with Powerapps, even though the app is share with the members in the group?

Hey!

Has this problem been solved or is it still impossible to use an Excel file in Teams which communicates with PowerApps?

Greeting from Austria.

good question @ewwSIT 

No, it's not possible to store an Excel file as data source in a Sharepoint document library. It's much better to use a Sharepoint list, or as we can to soon, use DataFlex in Teams.
