  • Hi wael_e,

    Excel set “Adjust column width” about Data formatting and layout by default, this will make our settings about the format disappearing after refreshing data.

    Please go to Data->Properties, in the External Data Properties dialog, uncheck the “Adjust column width”, and make sure that “Preserve column sort/filter/layout” and “Preserve cell formatting” are checked.
