Re: Expression Error.: The key didn't match any rows in the table


Just shooting from the hip, what I would do is to create a VBA script or similar, that opens each file and renames the sheets according to standard, you can use regular expressions for that e.g.

Dim Regex As New RegExp

Dim NewName As String, OldName As String

Regex.Pattern = "[\(\)]"
NewName = Regex.RE(OldName, "")


will remove all parantheses from name

Re: Expression Error.: The key didn't match any rows in the table

Thanks @mjc099 . I had the same problem when adding a new file to a folder data source. I changed the sheet/tab name in the new file to match sheet/tab name in the original spreadsheet file used to create data model, and the error cleared.


It would be great to have this error fixed in the future and purhaps use indexes to call for specific sheets in the future. As in my case, some automated repors saved in one folder will not have the same sheet names. For example, the reports saved in my folder will have sheet names tied to the date range they were generated for, hence the names will be different in each report.

Re: Expression Error.: The key didn't match any rows in the table


In order to avoid the error ralated to the sheet name chnaging unexpectedly, i use the { recordnumber} notation instead , to access the Binary of the Excel File and later the Sheet. Here i access the first file ie {0} of my Sharepoint folder , then get its content and then take its first {0} sheet

 #"_FileContent" = try #"Filtered Rows"{0}[Content] otherwise error "Pas possible d'accéder aux données du fichier: " & _FileName,
#"Imported Excel" = Excel.Workbook(#"_FileContent"),
Feuil1_Sheet = #"Imported Excel"{0}[Data]
