(unknown) data source

I have a data source in a report that keeps causing a message to pop up when it is opened. The data source does not exist, I cannot remove it, and when I click request access I get a 404 page now found.


Any clues how to make this data source go away?Capture.JPG

Thanks for the question. Is this a report that you created, or one that someone shared with you?


Two places a rouge data source can be linked to is in the "Report and Theme Settings" or "Current Page Settings":

  • Open the report. Make sure no elements are active.
  • In the right side bar select "report and theme settings" or "current page settings"
  • Navigate to the "DATA" tab for those settings
  • Does the (unknown) data source appear here? Remove it.



Let us know if that helps. Thanks!
