I’ve imported an Access DB (2 tables) into Excel. I have a vlookup column on the table in Excel so I can resolve for Parent name. When I click refresh i get the attached error, why is that?

The SUBTOTAL and AGGREGATE functions ignore hidden rows. AGGREGATE can also exclude error cells and more.

have you tried to change the Data Type in the Power Query Editor before performing the lookup?

No, I honestly was not sure what was going on. Thank you I will try to do that. Any suggestions on what I should change it to?

I would suggest changing everything to General or text, then in the excel itself, you can change and format each column.
