Hi,

 

I'm relatively new to power query.

 

I have an excel doc which has a table connecting to a data source which is a .csv file

I have added an additional column to the csv file and expected it to appear when I refreshed the connection to the data source but it hasn't.

How to i add the additional column?

 

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thankyou

Hi David

In Power Query, you can change the number of columns to be loaded

You may remove entire record, which specifies options, at all. Something like

Source = Csv.Document(File.Contents("C:\Test\Test.csv"))

Power Query is clever enough to recognise in most cases non-empty columns, default delimiter and encoding. Another story if on next steps you transform your columns somehow, you shall take new column(s) into account as well.
