Excel File Error

I'm getting an error in only a few cells when I "get data" from a specific excel file emailed by a client. The error shows up as div/0!. 

 

If I open the file save as then "get file" it is fine. Its only when I take the unedited file straight from the client that it causes issues. Its like it has a layer or something that only loads the formulas until its open. 

 

I need an automated system due to the number of files so opening and saving as then getting the files will not work.

Re: Excel File Error

@jchauvet,

What is the data look like in your Excel file? What is the data type the problem column?  Could you please share the Excel file so that I can test?

After loading data from Excel to Power BI Desktop, you can replace errors with your desired values in query editor. For more details,please reveiw the following similar thread and blog.
