When trying to create a data source connection in excel 2010 to connect to SharePoint list, We are getting below error in Excel:


PowerPivot For Excel

Cannot connect to specified feed. Verify the connection and try again. Reason: The remote server returned an error: (401) Unauthorized.


When we tried the same wcf connect in Chrome, We got below message:

HTTP 500

The Webpage can not be displayed



  • It was identified that in the one of the list had a column name with special character i.e.(# ; : ) 
  • We renamed the column name without any specific characters
  • Tried the WCF connect again and it worked.
