Hi @asjones ,


This has been acknowledged as a Power BI Known issue, and engineers will fix this in the future.
As a workaround:

Customer can navigate to the Power BI datasets hub and search for the dataset they need to connect to and click Analyze in Excel to generate an Excel workbook connected to the Power BI dataset.

@ikechukwu Thanks. Can I raise it through Power Platform Admin Center support request or should I use the Feedback option in Excel itself? (Power Platform ticket doesn't allow me to select Excel as the product I'm having trouble with).


@mmuddasar Use both and specifically mention my name so it can be routed to my team should the ticket get "lost".


@mmuddasar Please provide Fiddler traces as part of the ticket.
