PowerBI connector

Hello community,

 

I have a local server like this : \\00.00.00.00\Folder\Subfolder where we stock internal files for reporting purpose.

 

I'd like to connect PowerBI to this server, but I don't know which connector I should use. I've tried from web, and folder but it doesn't work.

 

Need help please.

 

Thank you

Hi @FranckGbadamass ,

 

If you want to connect to the file in the server, you need to select the connector according to the corresponding file type, and connect by accessing the corresponding file path in the connector.

For example: If you want to connect to a csv file in the server, you should select the csv connector and then visit the corresponding path(The premise is that your computer can access the path). 

 

Best Regards,
