Errors: No OAuth token with Google Drive scope was found.

I get an error (see below) when connecting BI to a view in bigquery that uses a table where the source is a google sheet on google drive.  I appear to have permissons to the google drive and can access the google sheet and see the view that uses the google sheet as a source. Anyone else had this?


DataSource.Error: ODBC: ERROR [42000] [Microsoft][BigQuery] (70) Invalid query: Error while reading table: <bigquery view>, error message: Failed to read the spreadsheet. Errors: No OAuth token with Google Drive scope was found.

Hi @Anonymous ,


Based on my research, accessing data hosted within Google Drive requires an additional OAuth scope. Have you enabled Google Drive access following the guide in this article?

Hey DBrownlow. Same problem here. Did you get through this ?

Simiar problem occur when trying to read Google sheet directly from Power BI : Works fine with a public access GSheet, but fails if authentication is required. Funny, as I already have a Google OAuth Token with BigQuery. GSuite tokens differ from GCP Tokens ?


I'll read the provided article.

Do you found any solution? Because I am having the same issue also.

Not much of a solution but as a quick workaround you can copy the content of the external Google Sheets table into a native BigQuery table with a scheduled query.


You can write the following query on the BigQuery UI:


     SELECT * FROM `project.dataset.external_table` 


Then schedule the query to run daily or hourly, and override the table `project.dataset.native_table`.


Finally, replace references to 'external_table' with 'native_table' in the view.
