Transient error on dataset refresh

Hi all,


I have a report that regularly fails to refresh against an excel file stored in a Teams folder. This does not happen always (but often) and I have no problem refreshing from PowerBI desktop. Any thoughts on what could cause this?


  • Data source error{"error":{"code":"ModelRefresh_ShortMessage_ProcessingError","pbi.error":{"code":"ModelRefresh_ShortMessage_ProcessingError","parameters":{},"details":[{"code":"Message","detail":{"type":1,"value":"SharePoint: Request failed: Documents/General/Actual & Forecast Spend_xlsm/_api/contextinfo"}}],"exceptionCulprit":1}}} Table: Project Return on Investment.

Thanks in advance.



Is someone editing the file when the refresh occurs?
