Unexpected Error when creating a DataFlow

Hi.  I am exploring the DataFlow functionality but seem to be falling at the first hurdle.  

 

If I Create a new DataFlow, and add an entity, I then try to add the url of a simple .xls spreadsheet located on my OneDrive.  I get an 'Unexpected Error' followed by the session ID.

 

Any clues as to what I may be doing wrong, or if its to do with not being able to source from OneDrive (can't imagine why not) then is there an example of a publicly available file or website I can access reliably?

 

Thanks in advance.
