Refreshed data source. Have now lost data connection.

Hello,

 

I refreshed my data source. Now, all of a sudden, I lost connection to my data (an Excel file in OneDrive).

 

I try to refresh. Close and open the browser. I make it connect to another data source before going back to the original one. Nothing works.

 

I keep getting " . . . your data source may be invalid".

 

Could anyone help me solve this? Thanks in advance.

@pfalto,

If the Excel file is still open, PowerApps will not be able to connect to it. Can you close the file, check that it has synced online, and then remove and re-add the file as a datasource?
