Data Refresh Credentials - The credentials provided for the File source are invalid

My guess is the filepath you have used doesn't match.

 

On the gateway you have registered "C:\" etc etc

 

In your project file, is your source also listed as "C:\" etc etc?

 

From the gateway's perspective "C:\Folder\File" is not the same as "\\Server\Folder\File" even if they resolve to be the same physical machine.  As an address, they are actually different.

Hey Ross,

 

Sorry didnt see you post but it was correct file path however some data sources in the PBI were not refreshed and purely static data. I tagged do not refresh in the file but it seems you need to add these Excel sources to the gateway even though i dont need the refresh for the data.
