Power BI RS - import data from Excel Online/sharepoint/365

I'm using Power BI Report Server and the latest Power BI Desktop for Report Server. I'd like to import data from an online Excel sheet. This sheet will be updated by multiple people.

Tried Excel (just brings up desktop file browser) and Sharepoint folder (tried a few options and got either errors or just a file list).

 

Thank you for your help.

Using the cloud version of sharepoint as a source for scheduled refresh is not supported by the on-prem Report Server (see Power BI report data sources in Power BI Report Server - Power BI | Microsoft Learn ). One possible workaround is to put the file on a network file share and access it using a UNC path (eg \\<server>\<share> )
