Error : You can't schedule refresh for this dataset because...


I am trying to schedule a Powerbi project. 
When I go to Dataset/Setting I have the error below :




I am using a Personal Gateway. The refresh in manual within desktop works fine.
As sources I have  only  :

  • some odbc  sources that query files in local a shared storage (Z:), no credential are necessary.
  • 3 Excel files.

I checked the Power BI-supported Data source for refresh and Odbc and Excel (of course) are on the list.
I checked that my sources were not considered as dynamic resources see my source definition page :



So, I do not understand why I have this message. Can you please help me to troubleshoot the problem?

Let me know if you need any other clarifications.

Thanks for your help

Right now this type of data source is not supported to refresh in the Power BI Service.


What you can do as a workaround is to use the relative path option as shown below:

Thanks for your help.

When you say: "this type of datasource is not supported" : which type of data source are you referring to ?
I have no dynamic  data source in my project.
