Using PowerPivot/PowerQuery on multiple pc/users sharing the datasource connections
Posted on 2014-07-28
I have a pivot table that has multiple connections from 2 SQL database tables. I have tried multiple times to get another users pc setup so that they are able to refresh the Pivot table data. I tried with a direct ODBC connection to the SQL Tables and also Creating an .odc file placed in their "My Datasource" folder.
I tried to refresh the data connection string and it fails saying that not a valid path see administrator.
I am looking for the best solution in setting up a user so that they are able to manipulate the Pivot table. Please keep in mind that the original Pivot was created on 64bit pc and the user is 32bit, would that make a difference?
