Hi @1000ghz ,

SharePoint "remembers" the original name the field was created with, even if you change it later, so I suspect any difference would be for this reason.

If I wanted to change the name, "permanently", in the list to have the same in Excel, could it be possible?

Hi @1000ghz ,

You would have to add a new field in SharePoint, copy over the data (you can do this in batches in a DataSheet view) and then delete the old field.
