Refresh Error--- Help Needed

Hi,

 

 I clicked the Refresh in the Power BI report, but it popped up below error message. It shows specific column cannot found.

But when I looked back the source data, the column still there. Can anyone help why it will show below error message and how to fix it? Thanks.

 

PBI Refresh:

Source Data( SAP HANA):

Hi @marry 

According to the error message, there are some steps in Power Query that refer to columns not present in the data source. It is advisable to review the steps in Power Query one by one. When you identify steps with these references, consider modifying or deleting them

Hi - this is just a guess as I've never worked with SAP HANA data but I don't think the column is there. The PBI refresh screenshot with an error message is displaying a column without spaces, but the Source Data screenshot shows columns with spaces.

 

Depending on how complex your transform steps are in PowerQuery, you could rename that column to remove the spaces straight after extracting it. Then, all downstream transforms will be looking for a column name without spaces.
