I've created an app which uses Excel as a datasource.
I have a flow which imports and updates from this Excel spreadsheet to a SP list.
However, when the flow is turned on PowerApps cannot save data to Excel. ('locked source' message).
Is there a solution for this?

Hi @Englishweb ,
1)whether you open this excel file in other page?
2)whether other people open this excel file?
What's more, you could consider take a try to add a "Delay" action before your "Update row " action.
Because if one action hasn't been finished, your second flow may fail and show this kind of error message.
I've found a similar issue for your reference:
I think your issue is about flow, I suggest you post your issue here:

Thanks for your reply.
The flow works perfecly and the problem in PowerApps disappears as soon as the flow is disabled.
I presume it must be a problem with Flow and Powerapps referencing the same datasource?
I'll post on the flow forum as you suggest.
