Hi  @dannytan111289 ,

 

As in power bi ,we cant index columns directly,from my point of view,I would recommend you that first duplicate table then remove columns respectively.

Take below table for example:

Split the table into 2 tables as below:

vkellymsft_1-1630917273378.pngvkellymsft_2-1630917281017.png

Then rename the column names in the second table to keep the same with the first one:

= Table.RenameColumns(Table.RenameColumns(#"Removed Other Columns",{"Phone","CustomerID"}),{"Sex","Name"})

In the last step,using append to get your expected output:
