Change existing datasource from Sharepoint to OData



I'm new to powerBI and have an existing dashboard using SharePoint/excel file as the data source. Is it possible to switch the source to use an OData connection instead? If yes, how is this done?

Create a second connection using ODATA. Make sure it produces exactly the same final result as your original query.  Then in Advanced Editor copy the resulting M code and place it into the original query. Once everything works you can remove the new query again.


Lots of backups!!! This is not a simple process and can break not just power query, but also visuals, measures, groups, renamed columns etc etc.
