Please explain what [@ ] means

I cant find any documentation on why some data sources have [@ put in front of them.  What would be the difference between Custs and [@Custs]

Re: Please explain what [@ ] means

Hi @CliveMM 

Here's a similar question that I answered the other week.

https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Building-Power-Apps/What-does-Table1-mean/m-p/457073#M136556 

Typically, we use the [@TableName] syntax when there's some sort of conflict between a data source name and a reserved word.

In simplistic terms, you can think of [@Custs] as a fully qualified version of Custs.
