Accessing Excel Workbook returns “The resource could not be found.”

I'm struggling to connect to an Excel workbook through the graph API. What's strange is that I am able to connect to my OneDrive and query recent documents, and even find a recent Excel workbook & its ID (call this sales.xlsx). The graph explorer (https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/graph-explorer) is successfully querying OneDrive and the sales.xlsx.

From the application, I can successfully see recent documents in OneDrive (including sales.xlsx). It is only when I try to do a GET call from my application to see the data inside an Excel workbook there is an "itemNotFound" error.

A call from the app to query OneDrive is successful, such as: https://graph.microsoft.com/v1.0/me/drive/root/children

A call from the app to then query a workbook fails, such as: https://graph.microsoft.com/v1.0/me/drive/items/{:id}

Has anyone experienced anything similar attempting to connect to the Graph API?

    Hey Bryan!

    Hopefully one of the other participants can answer you. In the meantime, I'd recommend looking at and posting a question on Stack Overflow using the microsoft-graph tag: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/microsoft-graph?mixed=1 There are Microsoft devs responding to those questions, generally within 24 hours.

    All the best,
