Getting the Field name of a SharePoint Column

When you name a column, I've noticed that SharePoint stores a Field value that remains the same even if you rename the column. I see it when I highlight my dynamic fields in Power Automate. Is there a way to get Power Automate to retrieve that field?

 

For example, if I have a SharePoint column called Editor Assigned To with a field name of Assigned_x0020_To_x0020__x0028_F, is there a function or expression I can use to get Power Automate to return "Assigned_x0020_To_x0020__x0028_F"?

Mmmm... I don't think so.

You nedd to use the column internal name to build OData Expressions. The following posts includes the description of two common methods to figure out what the internal column name is... but I am afraid both of them are manual
