Place the following M code in a blank query to see the steps. Note the only change with regard to your version is in the last step, adding custom the column.

 

let
    Source = Excel.CurrentWorkbook(),
    #"Removed Columns" = Table.RemoveColumns(Source,{"Name"}),
    #"Renamed Columns" = Table.RenameColumns(#"Removed Columns",{{"Content", "Data"}}),
    #"Added Custom" = Table.AddColumn(#"Renamed Columns", "Table With Company Name", (outer)=> Table.AddColumn(outer[Data],"Company Name", each outer[Data][Column2]{0}))
in
    #"Added Custom"

Hi  @gmrram 

Can you please show the actual error message?

And ideally share the pbix with the table you are working on in PQ
