Currently, when excel file is loaded to Power BI, the absolute filepath is captured in the M query. It would be nice if relative filepath was supported. Thus we could place excel file next to pbix and not worry about the file location (local machine, shared folder on server or onedrive)

Hitting this limitation in the case of pbix referncing xlsx on Sharepoint/OneDrive, and it's frustrating.

Pesky analysts asking for complicated features like relative paths. Microsoft developers can't cater to every niche edge cases!
