Name isn't valid. This identifier isn't recognized



I have an Excel online dataset which was pre-populated which is now connected to my PowerApp.


I was tasked to then add an additional column to the Excel table which will contain the new column 'Quantity'.


I can pull all the other columns with ThisItem.ItemID, ThisItem.Description, etc,.


However, I get an error when I call ThisItem.Quantity which is the newly created column in my workbook.


Some of the solutions which I have tried:

  • Refreshing the OneDrive connection to the Excel workbook within PowerApps
  • Opening and closing the workbook direclty and saving the workbook
  • Deleting the connection to the Excel online workbook and creating a new connection
  • Checking the spelling of my identifier on both ends, it is correct, no typos
  • Have tried using both ThisItem.Quantity and ThisItem.'Quantity'

Anyone with a solution around this?
