SharePoint data - what columns can I delete?

In looking in Power Query, I have a bunch of columns I don't need (they take up a bunch of space when I go into See Records in Power BI) but I'm hesistant to remove them as I don't want to cause issues with data.

 

Columns such as:

FileSystemObjectType

ID

ServerRedirectedEmbedUri

ServerRedirectedEmbedUrl

PhoneAgentID

PhoneAgentStringID

SupervisorID

SupervisorStringID

ContentTypeID

ComplianceAssetID

AuthorID

EditorID

OData_UIVersionString

GUID

ParentList

Versions

Properties

LikedByInformation

File

Folder

 

etc

etc

Is it ok to remove all of these?

Hi @bryanc78,

 

You could remove the all the columns you don't need that should not cause error.

 

In addition, in Query Editor, it allows you remove the applied steps. If you have error, you could remove the step that will be ok.
