Not able to add extra data source into a live-connection dataset

Hi all,

 

My dataset uses the data source below (live connection), and I'm using gateway to refresh the data.

I need to add to this dataset an excel file, from sharepoint, but I'm unable to do it as it's all greyed out.

What would be the option to add different datasource to the dataset?

 

Many thanks!

Hi @ROG 

If you use live connection to import data, you cannot add other data source to Power BI,here are some ways you can refer to:

1.You can transfer the data mode to Direct Query First, then you can import other data source

Open the feasure in preview:

Then you can change the mode, you can refer to the following link:

Using DirectQuery for datasets and Analysis Services (preview) - Power BI | Microsoft Learn

2.Use import mode to imort ssas data at first, then you can add other data source.
