Some problems with my app

Hi guys,

 

I would like to make you a question about Excel connection to Powerapps.

 

I made an app based on Powerapps connected to a Excel on OneDrive for business and everything was Ok but today I got this error that saids: "Failed to read metadata from file source. Response from the end service is: not found"

 

I don´t know what can I do, I saw on internet that many people is having this problem but I can´t find a solution.

 

Thanks.

Re: Some problems with my app

Hi @CP0822,

 

Try to follow below steps and see if the issue could be solved:

1. Copy the workbook to another location in your OneDrive for Business.

2. Remove the existing data source connection from View -> Data Sources section.

 3. Add a new data source and connect to the excel table from the location where you saved it in Step 1. 

 

As the table names remain the same in the previous and the new workbook, the app will connect to the new data source without any issues. You don't need to change the names in any formulas anywhere.

Mona
