Why the date format is changing to numeric once I update the source though I its formatted as datetime in power query

Hello All,

I have made a copy of my colleagues power query and adapted it as per my requirements. Everything works fine as it should till I update the source with new data and refresh my excel. I use huge data so I have disabled the background refresh preview inorder to not let my excel crash! Though I see that in the preview of queries and connections its shows the datetime format as dd.mm.yyy hh:mm in the excel sheet it shows as numerics. Also I noticed that the header is in Custom(dd.mm.yyyy hh:mm) format but the date under the header turns back to General. I tried various ways but everything was a temporary fix. Does anyone know how to solve this?
