    Power Query shows as external data connection and can't refresh online

    I have a workbook with a worksheet that pulls filtered data from a table on another worksheet all in the same workbook.

    Everything works fine locally, but when I try to refresh the data in OneDrive or Sharepoint online, I get an "External Data Refresh Failed" error.

    I don't know why this happens because I don't have any external data connections. In queries & connections no connections show, only my query.


    Any ideas?

    I suggest you check the connection code, it probably has a path set in it.
