Refresh(datasource) on a timer

Hi,

 

I have an app where I've exported a local excel table to a Data Table, however, getting the app to refresh automatically has been difficult.

 

I've tried having the OnTimerEnd value = Refresh(datatable) with no luck, and tried changing it to Refresh(datasource) with the same result. The only option I have to get new data is completely remove the connection and re-import. This can't be right.

 

How can I have a Data Table using imported local sheets update automatically with a timer?

Hi @IPeterson 

 

Import from excel connection stores a local copy of excel file within the PowerApp

This can only be updated manually

 

If you need to update information then use excel file stored in onedrive, or sharepoint or other data source
