Power Query Error - source data changed

Hello,

 

I had an excel file that was a source in a Power BI report I put together.

 

Well the pwbx file was open I opened the excel file to change some data.  Originally the column was a binary (0 or 1) however I updated it to show "Within", "Outside" or "N/A".

 

When I refreshed the data it showed errors going down the column.  I double clicked on the error, and now I'm stuck on the error and don't know how to fix it?

@Anonymous  as suggested by @Greg_Deckler remove the last step in your query. One of your steps should be "Changed Type1" which is effectively trying to convert your column into "type - number". It must be working fine before as you had 0 and 1 in that column. Now that you have text ("Within" etc), the data "type - number" is not valid which is giving you this error. Remove the "Changed type1" step and hopefully the error should go away
