Sharepoint List - filter not using updated column name

I recently changed the name of a MS Team, hosting a SharePoint list. I then updated a column name on the list (updated column 'Active' to 'Status) - which I use as a filter for a "Get Items" block in MS Flow.

 

In the flow (screenshot below) the new column is not being recognised, whereas the old column is.

This is the old column name - which works

This is the new column name which does not work

 

The updates were made over an hour ago, I would expect everything to be working by now?

Hi @Goochy13,

 

You can not change internal name of column. If you rename a column name, you just renamed its display name, the internal name wouldn't be modified.

You have to delete old column and create new column if you want to change column name.
