Re: SAMPLE DATA LOCATION

Hello @Ramole , the data from Excel file is not saved in another file on your computer. It is always used from the original file via Excel connector.

Re: SAMPLE DATA LOCATION

After looking closely at the screenshots you posted, it looks like the Excel files are not referenced via a connector local but rather the data is imported directly from local Excel files. In this case, the data is embedded into the actual app so there're no extra files on your PC. You can prove this by performing the following test:

1. Create a blank app and save it to your local PC as app.msapp. Note the file size.

2. Open the saved app and import something from an Excel file (note that the Escel Sheet must contain a table).

3. Save the app to your PC again and note that the app file size now is larger. This is because the data from the Escel file is now embedded into the app.
