New Excel columns in Power Query

I import data into PBI from an Excel file loaded into Sharepoint. New fileds added to the Excel file do not show in Power Query. There are many threads saying that you need to go into Advanced Editor and change the column value to the new number of columns in your updated Excel file. However I do not see that line of code in my Advanced Editor.

 

Any advice would be appreciated.

@MarcUrdang , In the recent version of power bi for excel and SQL server database, it has picked up new columns automatically.

Prior to that for excel we use to go and add columns to the list.

 

Can you share the code which are having in advance editor
