faild to show my table in datasource connection

Hello, 

 

For your convenience, I am attaching a snapshot of my excel table. circled in red, is the table I created for the upper portion of sheet. This table should connect to my powerappd in order for it to be modified by the user. I, however, Can't find it when I try and make a new connection to the app. I succeeded in making connections to other tables, but not this one. Any thoughts on that ?

Re: faild to show my table in datasource connection

Hi alriabdu,

 

Have you formatted the Excel file as a table?

 

It seems that there are special formats in the Excel file. Please remove the special format then try again to see if it will work.

 

Please check this doc for a reference:

Yes. With the help of MS team i did. I simple copied and pasted thd table to a new excel file and it showed up. It seems that, as you mentioned, the old table had some special formattimg and/or restrictions.
