Filter Query says my column does not exist

Please help. I have tried multiple iterations to get my Sharepoint list data to filter when creating a flow and I have come up empty. I need two filters actually, but I'll request help with one at a time.

 

Issue #1. I keep getting the following error message, except I am the only user.

Column 'Test_Site' does not exist. It may have been deleted by another user.

clientRequestId: c339ee21-39b2-4a68-bc79-f490a8d3e59e
serviceRequestId: c339ee21-39b2-4a68-bc79-f490a8d3e59e

 

Any help would be most appreciated. Thank you!Capture.PNG

@Adam_W Often the actual name of the column is not the name you see on the list.

 

Go to your list, click the options button -> 'List Settings'

Click on the column you're trying to update to open the column settings page

Look at the URL of the page, the name at the end is the true name of your column. Copy and paste this to your flow.

Hi @Adam_W ,

 

Have you changed the name of this field?

Try not to configure Filter Query and Limit Columns by View first, then observe the Body of Get items and see the name of this field currently displayed in the Body.

In addition, since you choose View, you need to consider whether this field is included in this View.

Please check it.

If it is the first Column it is highly likely names Title not the name you are using

hi,

 

I have a column named CODI, when I edit this column in the List Settings I get Title on the URL, so I tried both Title eq ...  and CODI eq ...

and I always get the error "column does not exist".

When I use CODI the error is "Column 'CODI' does not exist"

while when I use Title the error is "Column 'B28297' does not exist."  where B28297 is the items I want to compare to, I mean my query is Title eq 'B28297' in this case

Your query might need to be Title eq "B28297" not Title eq 'B28297'

Were you able to figure out a solution for this.

I have a list with LastName Column.

However it looks like the characters added are 

    _x0020_LastName

When I tired to place that into my Filter Query box it still gives me the error "Column 'LastName' does not exist. It may have been deleted by another user."

 

I tired with LastName and _x0020_LastName as the name of the column.

Any Suggestion.

Can you go to your SP list in List setting and select the Column as though you are going to edit it.  Then in the URL in the browser look at the name name at the end (see below example)  Whatever is there is what you should be looking for.  If there is a number in the  field name,  it sometimes gets a weird reference
