Why would I get an error "failed to parse text BATCH ID from column End Date New as type Date?

Options

Every quarter I am adding a new budget file, and when I am adding Q3, I get this error. This did not happen for Q1 and Q2. The file I am adding does not have a BATCH ID column, but I do have an email connector set up to receive a weekly file for the actual data, that does have a BATCH ID. I know this one might be hard to understand, but if anyone has any ideas.

This is the preview of my file, and it looks to be adding the BATCH and BATCH LAST Run column on the end, which is causing the issue.

    batch_id and batch_last_run get added automatically. Before you do what I assume to be a pivot, drop those two columns with an alter column tile.
