Excel table read-only data cannot be saved

Hello,

Powerapps tells me that the Excel spreadsheet I am using is write-protected. But this is not the case. I put the file on my desktop and in my OneDrive folder. Unfortunately it doesn't work anymore. I get the message "File write-protected".

I had renamed the tables again and adapted them to Powerapps. That's not the problem either. The values are also displayed, but can no longer be saved in the table.

Unfortunately I tried to create a new file without success.

Unfortunately I can't get any further, has anyone ever had the problem?

Many thanks in advance.

many greetings

PPM

I found the problem. I selected Excel as my data source. I need to select OneDrive as my data source. Now it works.
