Remove 2MB excel data source file limit

Kept getting an error when attemting to connect to an excel data source with the following error

 

File size above allowed value. File size:4570080, AllowedFileSize (in Bytes): 2000000

 

It is a multi sheet excel file with each sheet having table that i was attemping to connect to. It only connected to some of the tables. These were only going to be used as information retrieval no table was over 500 rows and would also not be written back to.

 

Could you please consider upgrading the file limit?

 

Many thanks

Any chance the team will look into this?

This file size limitation is ridiculous. Admittedly I am trying to create a connection to a large file (47MB) but my expectation is that a file that size (or larger) should not be a problem. We're not talking terrabytes, but a reasonable file size for most ad-hoc uses of PowerApps. I haven't see a response in this chain, is increasing the limitation even on the PowerApps enhancement list? This comment chain dates back at least 1 1/2 years!
