Failed to import Excel file from One Drive to Power BI

I have always imported Excel from One Drive to Power BI using the Embeded option in the Excel file menu presented on the One Drive page. When doing this, two variables were presented to me resid and authkey.

 

I'm on One Drive online right now and, as you can see in the right side of the screenshot, the authkey and resid variables no longer exist.

How else can I get these variables to successfully import the Excel file into Power Query?

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

 

The cause of the problem is that I am not the owner of the file. The file was shared with me. Therefore, I am not allowed to use the features described in the post.
