Hi @mohammedkhan ,

Does the Gateway and PowerBI desktop on the same machine? Please make sure you enter correct user name and password when adding Excel data source, here is a similar thread, please refer to it: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Power-Query/Scheduled-refresh-for-excel-file-with-on-premise-gatewa...

Best Regards,

Teige

Yes The Gateway and the Datasource are both in the same System, i am entering the Local System Administrator User Name and Password
