Hello @fabiopaturzo ,

 

If you imported the data from excel then you deleted the file, you could use the data imported in the pbix file without being able to refresh the data ince there's no connection to the source.

Hi Idrisshatila,

can you show how to only import the data, I can not find it?

Thank you

Fabio

@fabiopaturzo ,

 

So after you link the excel sheet and open it in Power query, you click apply and close button as shown in the screenshot and the data will get imported.
