Removing unused column from connected sources error

Hi,

 

I have multiple connections to folders which contain Excel files. I'm trying to remove unused columns from them, but I'm getting the error "Sorry...We couldn't find the column ..." when I try to refresh my file. Is there a solution to this?

 

Thank you.
