Failure when importing data to entity using Get Data from Excel

When using the Get Data from Excel, received "Import failed: THere was an error getting the project execution status. Executing." But it appears the records are still importing. Where can I go to see import failure logs for PowerApps?

Re: Failure when importing data to entity using Get Data from Excel

Hi @SCMarcommAdmin ,

Could you please share more details about the error message within your app?
Do you import data into your CDS Entity via the "Get Data from Excel" option?

If you want to see the Import Failure Logs within PowerApps, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in PowerApps currently.


As an alternative solution, you could consider take a try to import your data into CDS Entity using Power Query functionally within PowerApps.

More details about adding data into CDS Entity using Power Query Entity, please check the following article:

In addition, I also think the "Open in Excel" option within CDS Entity could also achieve your needs. Please check the following blog for more details:
