Hi @jaryszek ,

 

Just wrap the whole table reference in a Table.SelectColumns function:

= Table.SelectColumns(
    Excel.CurrentWorkbook(){[Name="Table322"]}[Content],
    {"columnName1", "columnName2"}
)

Thank you !

Indeed.

 

@jaryszek This is the same function that will be used if you use the Choose Columns button in the ribbon.
