MS Access dataset on Sharepoint - "Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0 provider is not registered"

Hi,

 

Hoping someone could help:

 

I have a report with a dataset which is an MS Access file that is saved on Sharepoint. When I try to refresh the dataset from the Power BI service I get the error:

Hi @bigrods 

How did the data on your MS Access file come from? How do you connect in Desktop ?

If you created your datasets and reports based on a Power BI Desktop file, Excel workbook, or comma separated value (.csv) file on OneDrive or SharePoint Online, Power BI performs another type of refresh, known as OneDrive refresh. In this case, you can refresh without configuring the gateway. Otherwise, you need to configure the gateway to help refresh .

Hi @v-yetao1-msft 

 

Thanks for the reply; I am using a Personal Gateway at present and this has solved it for now.

 

Sadly it's not obvious this is what is required to do; all other files held on Sharepoint can be connected to so you would assume Access db's would be fine also and this seperate method of connection is not required. Hope they manage to fix it.

 

But thanks for helping!

Hi @bigrods 

(1)Did you configure the gateway in your machine ? If no ,you can refer to the link to configure the standard gateway .

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/data-integration/gateway/service-gateway-install

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/connect-data/service-gateway-data-sources

(2) Did you install the 64bit Access database engine in the machine where the gateway has installed ? If no ,you can install the access database engine in below link .

(3)After you finishing all the options above successfully ,you can refresh normally in Service .

Hello Ailsa,

 

The database is held in the Cloud on Sharepoint so there is no need to configure a Gateway. Or is there?

 

Thanks

Hello,

 

My .xls file is also in Sharepoint. 

when creating Power query(Dataverse -dataflow) using this file. It gives below error.

How did you install in sharepoint? If you have solved it please let me know how did you solve it.
