Well I now see your issue. You cannot connect excel directly in Sharepoint folder. It has to be in OneDrive. 

If you want a live connection with the data put the file in your personal or business OneDrive. 

 

If don't want a live connection, you can also import the file into Powerapps directly. But that means anytime you make changes to the file, you have to import it again

Hi,

 My requirement is - I have a excel file which I have placed at sharepoint folder and now I want to connect to this file via power app so that power app can play with its data.

 

Provided video are dealing with detail of the file in document library not with data

 

Thanks
