Append Queries as New Error

New users: I have three separate Queries that have identical columns and column names, what's in the columns varies. I tried to append them into one new query and I got this error and I don't understand why. It has to do with a new column I made in each query which identifies the query to me in the combined sheet. Any ideas? I need all three of these combined into one create my reports.

Hi @Anonymous 

Did you use the dax to create a calculated column named 'Product Type'? After testing, if you have a same column from dax, and also have a same column from query, it will display the error message, you need to rename your calculated column with different names so that the error can be solved, you can refer to the following link.

Yes, 100% I used a DAX to create the new column. Thank you, I didn't know that would be an issue.
