I am trying to run a power query to import data from a folder containing 5 monthly files but am getting the following message when I double click on 'Binary' column,
DataFormat.Error: The input couldn't be recognized as a valid Excel document.
when I select one individual monthly file it imports data, any idea what I'm doing wrong.

It sounds like you're using the technique for importing CSV or Text files from a folder. The technique for importing Excel files is different.
For Excel files from a folder you must Add a Custom Column and use the Excel.Workbook function.
Then you expand the Table to get the columns from the workbooks.
