#1  The Import from Excel connector cannot be refreshed.  There is no live connection to your data in the desktop file.  The data simply gets imported into PowerApps and that's it.

 

#2 To connect to an Excel file and have live data refreshes you must place the workbook in OneDrive and use the OneDrive connector instead.

 

If these tips don't work, please take a screenshot of the connector you are using and let me know what's happening.
