From the Power BI portal, you don't connect to an Excel workbook—you import a table or tables from it to Power BI. Ensure your data is formatted as a table in Excel. Click Get Data, choose File, then select your Excel file. A file imported from OneDrive or SharePoint is automatically synchronized hourly. If you import from a local drive or network share you will need to refresh the data in Power BI.
