SP list column not available in PowerApps



I added a column to an excel table, which I exported to a SP list. I found out doing so the columns titles fit the ones I defined.

However this column which is marked as "one line of text" is not available in the app and I don't get why because all the others do.

Please see attached.

Thanks in advance,

did you try to refresh the data?

yes I did

Hi @JulieTE 

With SharePoint, sometimes the column name that you see in PowerApps doesn't match what you see in SharePoint. This can happen if you delete a column, and re-add a column with the same name.

On your screen, I would recommend that you type ThisItem. and see what fields are available through Intellisense. Can you see a field name that resembles your help column?

This post by @KickingApps provides a bit more detail...

Sure, that's what I usually use, but in this case I have tried them and none seems to correspond.
