  1. I have a scenario where I will frequently have to update a data source. Unfortunately, the data source isn’t live but instead is a static CSV file that I download/export from a third-party system. My process has been to download the CSV and add the date to the end of the file to help keep track. Here’s generic look at the CSV files:


    I built my workbook using the first/original data source but now, when trying to replace/update the data source, I’m encountering an error because I created a combined field that doesn’t exist in the new data source (columns, etc. are all the same and won’t change)
    what is the most efficient way to do so.
