Power apps Get data from excel, error- "file contains more than one sheet"

Hi everyone,


I am trying to upload data to tables in power apps using excel file.

Tried different data files to upload but fails to move forward with the same error.


Any help is appreciated!

Make sure that each spreadsheet is made a table and make sure that the table doesn't contain any calculated columns.   It will work best if the column types are either number, text or date/time. 

I am using a separate file for each table and each file contains only 1 sheet.


Does it impact if there are any option set values (text) that are being uploaded?


Powerapps cannot handle complex column types in an import.  Better to convert it to a simple text field.  You can easily recreate the option set in PowerApps.

Thanks for the quick response!
