MS Access Database Source

Hello everyone.

 

Not sure if someone would be able to help with this. I am attempting to revamp some old power apps that the previous person in my role had built 2 years ago. In this app they had some connections to what i assume is an Access database. I personally am not super familiar with Access but showing under connections of the app it shows multiple sources from OneDrive for Business named "Table_query_from_MS_Access_Database" a few times as seen below. I cant find anywhere on our OneDrive where something like this could be located. Is there any way to see more detail on the connection like you can in excel for example when you have external sources?

These appear to be Excel files that are the tables exported from an Access database.  Have you tried searching the OneDrive for xlsx files?  If the Access database is available to you, there is now a way of connecting it directly to Dataverse.  See this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FJbIZDo6DZ4 for more details
