Hello @jelena , thank you for your post.

Can you please share the folder and use that Share path? e.g. \\QSShare\03 Production and try again?

Also, you mention you are trying to modify the data connection, are you able to create a new data connection instead of modifying an existing connection?

Please let us know, thank you!

second, your are repeating lib://…../

Your variable has lib://QSSource/
And when you use it you are getting


Try taking it out from your variable or load statement.


hope this helps.
