excel source file

Hello

I made a dashboard from an excel file in sharepoint. The source file (excel) contains weekly data and is updated on a weekly basis. Recently when the excel file was updated only some of the columns in my power query editor was updated while other columns show wrong value which displays wrong values in my dashboard. Any idea on how to fix this? The pbix file is not yet publised

Thanks in advance!

You've not given much info, but it may be the Excel column names are changing, and you don't have the right Power Query code to handle that. See Renaming A Column In Power Query Based On Position — ehansalytics for code that will rename the columns for you based on position.

Otherwise, you'll need to supply examples and expected output.
