Power BI report switch datasource

Hi Friends,


I tried to change data source from dev to my prod in report, when I apply changes, it starts refreshing data, later stopped saying the one of column is not in one of the table. Dev and Prod is exact same in term of schema. I don't know why it gave this error.


Anything I can try to figure out?


Many thanks,



Figured out issue, it's problem lies in View, which is missing column. Thanks everyone for help.

@River ,


If there any unprintable character in the column name?

Or, how I can clean out data, get it refresh?

The error should point you to the column name. Not sure how to be more helpful than that.
