Workarounds

1. Add the second data source to the worksheet you want to show use parameter.
2. When opening the workbook, first browse the dashboard/worksheet which uses both data sources and then switch to the dashboard/worksheet using the parameter. 
 

Cause

This is because there are multiple data sources, and the parameter uses another data source that is not included in the worksheet/dashboard.
