I deleted a Connection that was not required and now my app will not export.

When I try to Export my App, I get the following error:


Could not find connection '5c780d69ac1348e69b07d98dde9b970d' for API 'shared_sql'.


This is not a mistake. I removed this connection because it was necessary, & I should be able to do so.


I have been through all the DataSources in the App & removed any that reference it, yet still the annoying glitch persists.


I have saved the App to my hard drive, renamed to .zip, and opened it in edit, to find the offending string here, amidst loads of gobbledegook:


"LocalConnectionReferences": "{\"62362de1-3ef5-4bb9-9052-d57529b2d56b\":{\"dependents\":[\"9873a92f-1e14-417e-8fae-42510d2fefe6\"],\"dependencies\":{},\"dataSources\":[],\"datasets\":{},\"connectionRef\":{\"displayName\":\"SQL Server\",\"iconUri\":\"\",\"id\":\"/providers/microsoft.powerapps/apis/shared_sql\",\"sharedConnectionId\":\"/providers/microsoft.powerapps/apis/shared_sql/connections/5c780d69ac1348e69b07d98dde9b970d\",


What I don't know is how much, or up to where, I should delete?


Can anyone help?


Hello @stapes looks like is referring to a flow. I'm wondering if that is the full error message. 

@Yeiner- it was the only message displayed! I have overcome this now but I did have to redo a weeks work. Very impractical!
