Hi @balachandra,

 

I am not sure I understand your questions.

Data source in PowerApps is only connections, unless we "query" the corresponding data, there is no data details could be referenced under PowerApps.

For the Connection details, please see if the article below would help:

Add a data connection in PowerApps

More reference regarding data source in PowerApps:

Understand data sources in PowerApps

We could check the currently connected data source under:

Content->Data Source->Data Sources(on the right pane of PowerApps studio)

If you have any further questions, please feel free to post back.

@balachandra, do you still need further help about this issue? To view the details of the DataSource, please sign in PowerApps ->In the left navigation bar, click Connections -> select the connection which you added in the app -> click Edit to view the details.

Re: How to find out DataSource details which are added to app

I have a smilar question that I can't seem to find in the links you have suggested.  I am going back to an App I created some time ago when I was first experimenting with PowerApps.  I using the web version, not Studio.  I want to update the Excel table with additiona source information.  I would do this oputside the App.  The App is only using this information for lookup purposes.  While I can see the table name that is referenced for the data, I am struggling to find the Excel file the table is in.  Poor documentation on my part and I could certainly start-ove but if someone has any ideas, your reply would be appreciated.

I think I have done exactly the same thing - connected a PowerApp to an Excel file, and now I cannot see the path of the Excel file.

Yes go to View on the top Nav Bar and then press Data sources. The data sources you are currently connected to will appear.

Looking at Data Sources gives me the names of the Tables, but not the name of the Excel file or path?
