Source Structure change in Power BI Desktop

Hi All,

 

I have implemented reports on Desktop last year and this year,there were more columns got added to the source(.xlsx).Now when I am trying to refresh the source,new columns are not identified and throwing errors. I see this kind of error last year as well. Is there any update happened or any alternative to overcome this problem.

 

Appreciate your help,

KVB

Whatever the new columns in the new file, those columns wasnt found. That's the error.

Hi

 1.Are doing the refresh in Query Editor ?

 2. Do you see the new columns in Query editor or there itself the new columns are not coming?

3. If you are not seeing in Query Editor itself then try to create another Query based on your source to see you are getting the extra columns in your new query.

4. Try clicking the "Source" Settings ( you can see this in applied steps) and make sure you are pointing to the updated source where you have the new columsn as well.

 

Thanks

Hi @vkomarag,

 

Are there any columns that are deleted at the same time? I think it's the deleted columns cause this error. Please check it out in the Query Editor. If there are some steps related to the deleted columns exist, please handle them first.
