- Yesterday I created a large Sharepoint custom list
- Today I connected this list to a Form Control in the PowerApp I've been working on
- MANY of the fields were somehow "auto-named" by PowerApps to random strings
- This makes calling or Patching values quite impossible
- What gives?

All good @anees, I think I got it.
The part of this situation that prompted the post is that, its random which column received internal vs display name:
I just want to prevent this from happening again when I recreate this 40 column list and future lists. Sounds like its being worked on. I appreciate all the follow up.
Lets me know i'm not going crazy! 🙂
After communicating this issue with another user, they also saw this random naming issue when using Quick Edit to add columns.
I haven't had the time to reproduce the error, but its something you may want to investigate.
This is happening again. Earlier this week I was able to reference display names from my SharePoint list, today, I cannot access several columns and the name has been changed to internal names (that I never entered i.e. _x0067_js7)
Hi @TTaylorAPS ,
I found that this problem occurs when:
- In a Sharepoint list, you enter "Quick Edit Mode"
- While in Quick Edit Mode, you click "Add Column"
- All columns added in this way will be created with a random string as you indicated.
Did you create new columns in this manner?
Hi and Thanks.
I normally create the list before the PowerApp and never experienced the issue before.
It has since seemed to have resolved itself.🤔
I'll keep your tips in mind going forward though.
