Dataflows - failing to find Sharepoint files

I have successfully being using dataflows to retrieve excel files stored in Sharepoint for several months now.

Last week, I ran into repeated failures but when I try to edit the dataflows I get the following screen - the dataflow cannot see the file stored in sharepoint.

If I take the same code and run it in power bi desktop it can find the file succesfully.

This issue is making my project's code unsupportable as it cannot be edited - the evaluation step fails for any changes.

Thanks @prashant and @jeremyking77 for working through this issue. I used the Sharepoint.Contents workaround as typically all the files I a require are in the same folder.
