Trying to update a field name in Power BI model

A field name was updated in the SQL Server database, so I am getting an error in my Power BI report saying the field is not found when I refresh the data. There are lot of additional query steps cleaning up the data after the initial load. What would I need to do to fix this issue?

@meddojeddo you need to go to the step where it fails and before that add another step to rename your new field name to the old name in case you don't want to change the column name in all the remaining steps.
