I had this today when I was trying to get data in an MS Access db but the table was actaully a linked file to an Excel sheet. I changed it to a "table" and then it worked.

for my particular issue it was trying to combine multiple files from the same folder but the sheets had different names (named the same as the file)

as per some of the solutions above I changed the Source sheet name from a specific name to the sheet number, all was good



Source = Excel.Workbook(Parameter1, null, true),
Receipt_1 = Source{[Name="Req_84521"]}[Data]



Source = Excel.Workbook(Parameter1, null, true),
Receipt_1 = Source{0}[Data],

I have renamed a spreadsheet in excel and received this error. I then renamed the dataset field on power bi desktop and tried to refresh, though I received the same error. Is there a way to fix this?

I followed some of the steps above but came across with interesting finding. I got this error as well, but in my scenario it appeared this way:
With my own credentials, as sharepoint site owner, I was able to read the file(s) with no issues.
When changing the credential to service account this error started to appear. The error didnt come out from sharepoint that had standard members/visitors, but in sharepoint where members and visitors were managed through AD groups. I added the service account to the AD admin group which was part of site visitor, but it didnt work. After adding the service account directly to the sharepoints visitor member list the file started to load with no issues. Hope this helps someone else as well.
