PowerPivot Data Refresh Successful but changes not persisted??


  • I have published a powerpivot workbook (excel 2013) on SharePoint 2013.

    I am able to refresh the powerpivot connections from inside the browser (data fresh -> all connections).

    Now I can see that it has download the most recent data.

    If I close the browser and open it again. It goes back and shows me stale data which is 5 days old (the date when I had published the excel sheet on SharePoint).

    Is this normal behaviour?? If the data refresh was successful, then why were the changes not persisted? 

    Why does the data go back to the old state before refresh??
