    Change Column Types programmatically - Power Query

    The attched workbook has a table where I want to change any column that has a "/" in the Header to type Number.

    The Code I have at present is below - however I get an error that says


    Expression.Error: We cannot convert the value "Cty/State" to type Type.
    Details:
    Value=Cty/State
    Type=[Type]]

    What have I done wrong ???


    Thank you

    Thanks BoRy

    It works very nicely - allows me to filter my Column Headers
