I have a query in my excel which is directly loaded to a Pivot Table. In the connection properties of the Query, I have set the query to refresh on workbook open. And I have done the same thing to the Pivot table.
I would like to know and customize the order of Refresh. I would like the Query to be refreshed first and then the pivot table. How to achieve this?
Note: I did not load the query to a sheet, I loaded the query directly into a pivot table

I would also suggest going to the properties of the query and uncheck "Enable background refresh" if possible. Depending on the situation, this setting may appear grayed out. But if it isn't, make sure it does NOT have a check mark and git it a try.
To go to the properties, you can open the queries pane on the right-hand side in Excel, and then right-click and choose Properties at the bottom of the menu.

Would you know why when I do this I get a error?
[Expression.Error] The Column "Col;umn2" of the table wasn't found.
I also tried creating a new Excel document and try with a fresh connection (no step added) just loaded the data and unchecked Enabled Background Refresh - Error. When I check it runs perfectly.
