Data update.

Hi everyone!

 

I'm having some problems with my data update. I have an excel data base where I added some new columns and I'm not being sucessful to update then to PBI. When I try to refresh PBI there's a message: "Column number 50 not found".

 

Thanks!

Re: Data update.

Hi @hpimenta ,

By my tests and research, we will not get the error message for updating data in power bi desktop when we only add columns in the underlying data source.

Do you get the error message like below?

If that is the case, this error normally occur when you delete the column which in the visual in your underlying source. For my example, I delete the Product column in my excel, so it will show this error when I click refresh button in power bi desktop.

If you get the error message, you could delete the column in the change type step in query editor to fix it.
