Failed to read meta data from file source

Hi,

 

I've granted access rights to a guest user.

The app works fine, however the datasource doesn't.

It's an Excel workbook with 8 tables in it. It's located on my OneDrive for Business.

I've granted read/write access to the excel workbook as instructed by Microsoft:

https://docs.microsoft.com/nl-nl/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/share-app-data

 

When the guest users opens the app the first screen is presented and then:

"Failed to read metadata from file source ......". It seems that each time the message refers to different tables.

 

I'm reading a lot about this problem, but I don't read a solution.

PLease, does anybody have an idea?

Thanks a lot.

It seems a Onedrive for Business issue/limitation. 

I've converted my Excel workbook to sharepoint lists

I don't have the problem anymore.
