OK, what's up with this? "Field Job Number: Name must be alphanumeric."

 

I am giving PowerApps a first try--and encountering difficulty way too soon for my pleasure.

 

I am simply trying to build a new Entity.  I add one new Text field (Job Number) to the Entity and try to save the Entity.  Then, I get this message---

 

   Field Job Number: Name must be alphanumeric

 

I cannot clear the error and it won't let me save the Entity.

 

There is no field type named "alphanumeric".  The only field that I added is a text field.

 

Has anyone else seen this?  Does anyone know why this happens?

OK, please disregard my last.  This is what happens when you place a space in a Field Name.
