PowerBI Refresh:Column Missing

I am trying to refresh my data and am getting the following error:

 

The column '% staff working different hours from home' of the table wasn't found.

 

However, when I look at the data source and the dashboard - the column is there and I couldn't detect any different in terms of column sequence, spelling errors, spacing etc. either. What could be the issue here and how do I resolve this?

There is most likely a missing or extra step inside the Power Query Editor. 

 

See this thread for a similar problem: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Desktop/Load-was-cancelled-by-an-error-in-loading-a-previous-table-...

 

Open the Power Query Editor, click on the query that is giving an error, in the yellow ribbon select 'go to error'. Then click on the step ABOVE the one that you are taken to (in the Applied Steps on the right hand side). This is the last step that works, and you'll need to get that table looking like your data with the columns in order for the remaining steps to work.
