PQ error handling #N/A

I am building a BI based on an excel file submitted by the data entry operators (upon which I have no control).


The file contains columns with #N/A values in some of the columns. I also don't know beforehand/ control on which column these values might end up.


Whenever there is #N/A in any of the columns the BI breaks. What is the most efficient way of handiling #N/A without requiring the data entry operators to make necessary adjustments while submitting the file.


I tried try..otherwise but it does not seem to work.

Hi, @smpa01 ;

there are 2 options "remove errors" and "replace error" in Power Query Editor

Right-click to columns that contains errors and choose appropriate option.
