Totally unable to pivot this using PowerQuery and I am not sure why


Okay so my data looks like this:




And it goes down a long way.  What I want to do is to pivot this table based on the FinancialYearStart column. so that I get something that looks like


ProjectCode   2011  2012   2013  .......

Code              sum   sum    sum .......


Now this should be a classic but it just fails giving me this...



Looking at each of these the error is






Resolver I

I have absolutely no idea why this is.  I've tried using a replace to ensure any nulls are not nulls but this still happens.  I really need this but just cannot get it to work.


Anyone got any ideas?

Is PBI automatically adding a convert values row to your query? its caught me out with that before. 

Turned out that an earlier step in the query that generated the source was adding an issue into the table.  Using a try otherwise on that eliminated the dodgy row/rows and the pivot worked 🙂
