Data source error message for Web/Sharepoint

Hi,

 

Trying to connect monthly excel file from sharepoint and get the following error message;

 

"Unable to Connect

 

We encountered an error while trying to connect.

 

Details: The input URL is invalid. Please provide the URL to the root of a Sharepoint site, or to the service document or entity of its OData Feed (with no query of fragment part)."

 

I copy and pasted link where the file is stored on sharepoint folder site.

 

Unless I've not set this up correctly?

 

Many Thanks

Sophie
