Sharepoint Online Excel Problem Loading data

I am attempting to get data from one of several Excel files that exists in a sharepoint online directory such as the following: https://xxxxxxxx.sharepoint.com/sites/BookSales

When I attempt to load the data I get errors in the query. At first I thought the problem was related to whatever it is trying to do to in the combine & load, but I removed all files except for the single excel file I need and still get the following error:

Expression.Error: The type of the value does not match the type of the column.

The errors appears to be in the 'Date Accessed' column and I have no idea where that is coming from. I've tried to change the data type on the column, but I still cannot get my data to load. Any help would be greatly appreciated
