DataFlow: I can't read file stored in OneDrive or Sharepoint folder - Credential not valid

I am new on PowerApp, learning from zero!. I want to import data from file into a CDS custom Entity using DataFlow.  I am getting Error message:  Credeintial not valid! .

I check all connection are ok: CMS, OneDrive, Sharepoint, http with Azure AC; Mail, User Office 365, Forms, Notifications, Excel on line, Approvals, Office 365 Outlook.

I am trying to pick the file from OneDrive or  either from Sharepoint with my valid organization microsoft account I receive the same message. 

my plan is Office 365 with power app. (.. could it be that issue? or limit of connections been used ? (currently eleven connections)

Re: DataFlow: I can't read file stored in OneDrive or Sharepoint folder - Credential not valid

Hi @MarioRDemarchi,

I think there's really something wrong with the credentials. Have you tried creating new connections again? Also, do you have MFA enabled on your account? I have experienced that being an issue where it tries to connect but expected a response from a device which expires.

Hope this helps

Eric, probelm solved.  I was able to import xls in OneDrive with DataFlow!

a) reset my microsoft account password

b) delete, and add again connections

c) addionally I was using a xls file not an xlsx format !   ( see : https://docs.microsoft.com/es-es/power-bi/desktop-access-database-errors )

 

I am very thankfull for your support!

Regards Mario
