Re: BUG2 TODAY: Sharepoint columns renamed by PowerApps to random strings

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: 

 

  1. I create SP lists all the time as PowerApp backends and this has never happened before
  2. For this particular list, only 12 or so of the 40 columns show the "internal" name. The rest are named just like I named them.
  3. 2 columns are named "ODATA.%20..." which isn't an internal nor 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! 🙂

Re: Sharepoint columns renamed by PowerApps to random strings

Hello @anees and @LanceDelano. My memory was jogged and I believe I found the issue. 

 

  • Instead of clicking "List Settings/Advanced/Create Column" on this particular list, I used Quick Edit to add columns. 

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.
