Refresh Data Not Working (Smartsheet to Power BI)

Hello All,

 

     I have a smartsheet that items are deleted and updated often. In this scenario i have built a a full Power BI Visual report based off a Smartsheet that had a colunm recently deleted. Now i get a pop up stating it cannot find this specific colunm. When i look into the Table View, I removed it and tired refreshing again and i got the same error message. 

 

Please let me know how to full refresh the data to keep updating my live visuals. 

 

Best,
Daniel

Hi @Idrissshatila ,thanks for your quick reply, I will add more.

Hi @Dklein ,

Regarding your question, did you connect Power BI Desktop to Smartsheet first and then delete a column in Smartsheet?

Here is my data, I started with two columns of data. I connected to this data source using Power BI.

After I delete the column 'Col2' it gives the following error.

This is because your Power query references a non-existent column name, find it and delete it.
