Expression errors while loading Access database in Power BI

Hi, I am trying to load a simple Access database with two tables. First table has names and food preferences and the other has food types. They both are connected with one to many relationship. I receive the following two errors when I load the tables in Power BI.


Expression.Error: The index is outside the bounds of the record.


Expression.Error: The column 'Food preferences.Value' of the table wasn't found.
Food preferences.Value


Please help me here!

Hi Semusal,

I can't reproduce your problem based on your error information. You need to check whether your column contains specific  characters, you could change column name to see whether it works or not . Or you need to check whether you have this column in advanced editor.

By the way, you said there is also error in index, you need to check whether your index is correct(modify it to start from 0)

Best Regards,
Zoe Zhi
