Expression Error The column of the table was not found in Dataflow

I have a dataflow which has multiple transformation steps, and my one of the steps (shown belwo) named "Invoke Custom Function", now throws an Expression Error, 


I did tried to go through the entire query by copying it from the ADVANCED EDITOR and pasting it in notepad and used the (FIND) functionality of notepad to look for the column named EWR_Planner, but this column does not exist in the entire query. 


How do I get rid of this expression error from my dataflow

This runs a custom function, which will be another query. If you look for the name of this function in the formula bar / advanced editor, you should see it in the queries on the left.


Here you will find the column throwing the error
