Failing to understand data source refresh

I'm trying to update my data source using the "Refresh" function.

I'm getting this error saying that I need to use a "connected data source", which clearly I'm using.

What am I missing here?

It should be Refresh(TableName)

Or

Refresh(EntityName)

ManuSemanals is an entity. That's why I don't understand what is going on. I also tried using a table and nothing.

Please this question might be too  basic but is formula  OnSelect of a Button.

 

If yes try to remove the Datasource connection and reconnect again

Hi @Anonymous 

I suspect the cause of this problem could be because you've imported an Excel spreadsheet with the same name, and PowerApps isn't able to distinguish between the two data sources.

Could you try removing the MenuSemanal Excel datasource and see if that helps?
