Sql error to save a form, does not recognize a column.

I'm trying to save a form in SQL, but the message is showing that there is no column x in the table, but it does exist.


When saved without the specific column, the application registers and "null" appears in the specified column field.


Accepted Solutions



This is an inner exception being thrown when the app is trying to run some stored procedure. You can see it's a server response so it's not likely an error with the app itself or a given expression, although always possible.


The most likely breakpoint is the stored procedure in question. You can look to see if there are syntax errors, maybe there are other deleted fields still being referenced in there. You'll also want to look for special characters in both the SPROC and your data, anything that could possibly interrupt this.


You can try some "toggle" type steps, as well...


  • Recreate the data connection in your app, ensuring to refresh your data source.
  • Recreate the SPROC the app is leveraging.
  • Test the same SPROC/expressions/et al. in a fresh app to see if it still reproduces.
  • Test from Power Automate to see if the issue follows there. If it does, then you can be pretty confident the issue is with the server, SPROC or data.

If this remains persistent even with this troubleshooting, you can navigate to the Power Platform Admin Center and set up a support incident. This may not ultimately be a PowerApps issue but we can make certain.


Let us know!




Hi Patrick,


We followed the steps, remade the connections and in our database we don't have Stored procedures, triggers, etc. And the error persists.


I appreciate your feedback and we will set up a support incident on that.
