Error message " "The model doesn't have a named expression named <Query>" after clicking 'Apply'

After renaming a query and clicking Apply, I sometimes get the following error:


"Apply query changes



The model doesn't have a named expression named <Query>."


I have the April 2019 Power BI Desktop installed, but have noticed this error for at least the last couple of months and on multiple computers.

Hi @milla


Are there more than one query in Query Editor? If it is, please enable the "Enable Load" for one query, click on Apply. If this query can be loaded successfully, then enable the "Enable Load" for the second query and click on Apply. Repeat the steps to check which query has the issue.
