Hello;
when I upload date from the source (database) I got a copyed columns from some of the columns(ex: I got sales column and sales - copy column ), I tried to solve it but unfortunitlly I didn't.

I would be grateful for any suggestions or solutions.

The source contains the same column and PowerBI gives another alias, which is the correct way to do it.

Either add an alias to the source field or just rename it on PowerBI (through Power Query)
