Powerbi dataset refresh from excel on sharepoint

Hi to every one,

 

I have an excel file on share point containing data and a copy of the same file which I am using as datasource for powerbi.

I am using Microsoft flow to copy and replace the destination file whenever the source file is changed.

 

My question is that when a file is replaced n share point does the file id change? If yes will the powerbi dataset refsh work with the new file that has replaced the old file?

Hi @shashwatshukla 

 

Based on my test, the file id will not change when the destination file is overwritten by a new copy after the Microsoft flow runs successfully. And the dataset can be refreshed successfully in both Power BI Desktop and Power BI Service.

Hope this helps.
