Cannot create a connection to data source '$Embedded$'. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I created a set of bins in a table and then I tried to use it in row values. However when I put values in it says Cannot create a connection to data source '$Embedded$'.

    What does that mean?

  • Hi AlexMartini,

    Where do you use it in row values, in power pivot or histogram? Could you please more details or snapshot for further analysis?

    Based on your error massage, there is something wrong in the connection to your data resource, please verify your data connection, and check if it is successfully.

    If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to let me know.

  • Hello,

    $Embedded$ is the name of the connection to the Power Pivot Engine. Does Power Pivot work with other workbooks?
