PQ loads rows in a different order as the editor

I have a PQ table that I've sorted in the editor, but when I load it as a table in the Excel file, the rows come out unsorted. What am I doing wrong? (I am selecting Load to a Table, and Add to the Data model)

Thanks. It was actually through an index column that I noticed the table was loading in a pseudo-random order. I managed to get rid of it by unchecking "Add to the data model"

You are not doing anything wrong.  There is no guaranteed sort order, neither in Power Query nor in Power BI.  Add an index column if you need deterministic behavior.
