Field vs Coloumn header issue in Sharepoint list

hi,

 

I have proper headers in my List which are my data source for the power app

however, I have noticed that the power app is reading those columns as Field1, and so on?

is it known issue or am i doing something incorrect?

I suspect you are running into the difference between Column Display names and Internal field names.  It looks like your SharePoint list was generated by some process that just named the columns sequentially and then modified the Display Names.  Power Apps is going to use the Internal names in most places and once those are established they can't be changed.

Intresting

it was exported through Excel tables

But it didn't realize that it will automatically change the column headers

the question is why is it happening, because i don't remember changing the Display header names, its directly pulled from Excel

I suspect that is just the way it works when exporting Excel.  First it creates the columns and then renames them.
